Christmas came a little early for me this year

On friday there was a package waiting for me at my doorstep, it was my Zutter Bind it all.

Luckily for me I also received my owires the same day, I ordered them separately from a wholesale seller where I only paid 32 euro for 100 pieces (shipping included)

So this weekend I had to test drive my new toy.
I made this 20x20 cm (8 by 8 inch)  book using pages I printed, I found this fabulous blog with downloadable backgrounds:
I haven’t embellished it yet.

Then I quickly made a coloring book for/with my son.
I used a mix of printed coloring images and blank pages (both white and colored ones).
My son had fun punching the holes and seeing the process of loose pages turned into a bound book.

My first findings are that the punching part is a bit stressful (need to practice on having a straight line of punches)
And the binding is a bit too loose, I reckon I just need to adjust the knob a little more.
But overall I’m pleased with how this machine performs and will be using it more.
(I already have a few projects in mind, so be sure to stop by regularly or just subscribe by mail and you will not miss a thing J )

Bye for now.
