So, remember all those pieces of junk? Well they've all been papered or painted or stamped, or all three, and now I need to bind them into a book shape. Horace bought himself a fabulous ebear purchase a couple of weeks ago- a Cinch. I thought I might see how it works.
First I'll sort my junk pieces into something resembling a book
Now to punch some holes for the binding wires. Goodness, this is hard work.
The cinch has a handy holder for the wire and punched card so you can assemble the book as you go. I placed all the inner card on first.
Then the front cover
And finally the back cover, the wrong way round, so when you fold it back over it hides the joins in the wires.
I then used the handy squishy thing on the Cinch
It has different height settings so you can use all sizes of wires. Good job as this book has grown rather fat with junk.
Oooh, I'm rather pleased with the end result.
My wires are a little out of shape as I put all four paws worth of pressure on the Cinch. Who cares though? Not me. :)
Inside are all manner of sizes of card. The left hand card came from a Bear fruit roll snack! The right hand was the tab from a latte box!
I added some tags, as we have about 3 gazillion of them.
Goodness, I managed a matching page.
One of the misted and stamped pages.
Ooh, a matching tab too.
I added a stamped design to the front to add a little interest. Now I'll sit on the bed and pretend I've been here all afternoon.
What? This old book? I've had it for ages!!!!
With love from the bears
