I got a Bind-it-All as a gift from my sweet husband, and I've been having so much fun with it! Here are my first two projects:

A bingo card book:


And this little notebook made from the cardboard coasters they use at bars. This is a great little purse journal, because it doubles as an emergency coaster in case of unexpected Cosmo consumption.  Cheesy


Now I'm walking around my house looking for all kinds of funky things to make books out of. Good thing the dog's too fat to fit in the machine.  Grin

EDIT:
Here are two more little books.

I haven't thought that far ahead with these two. I may use the bingo book for ATCs (Artist Trading Cards), and the little coaster book may end up in someone's stocking at Christmas.  Smiley

Eventually I'd like to do a bunch of tags and bind them together, but for now, I'm just playing.  Smiley

Those are Darling!

Thanks!  Smiley

You would have a blast with it. I need to bind up some arty stuff, but with these first two books, I just wanted to take that little bad boy out for a test drive. It's really easy to use.

Wow!  Great books racky.  Your family and FRIENDS are so lucky!  I bet one of those coaster books would fit nicely in my sad, empty little stocking!   Wink

Oooh, those are great!  Love your choices. 

edited - I just looked that machine up and see that it cuts small.  That's very cool.  And it seems really reasonable compared to some of the other ones I've been looking at. 

Does the wire coil stuff come in small sizes or do you have to cut it?  If so, does it leave sharp edges?

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

Oooh, those are great!  Love your choices.  Is it easy to adjust the machine to make small books like that?  (vs. the standard business binding size of 11"?)

It cuts only six holes at once, so the little book shows what it does with one cut. To make more holes (like in the bingo book), you just shift the cover over to cut the extra holes. It will just about bind any size.

And it's such a pretty color. I love it.  Cheesy
