Bind-It-All Tutorial

18 Feb

Have you ever used a Bind-it-All by Zutter? I love mine. It is a wired binding system that cuts the holes and binds the wire. I love using it to make my “Perfect Travel Journals” which you can see in my Etsy shop, Frolicasions. But almost any kind of spiral bound book can be created using it.

Today, I’ll share how I bound the birthday reminder book that I posted HERE. Here is a picture of the final project that I created using CutCardStock.com’s papers.

  • After creating pages for a book, place a few of them in the cutting slot in the Bind-it-all. Depress the blue lever to cut holes for the wire binding. This book is the perfect size and all 6 holes fit the width perfectly.
  • After all the pages have cut holes, stack the pages in regular book order. Then take the back cover out from the bottom of the pile and place it on top of the pile, in the direction it should go.
  • Now trim a piece of wire from Zutter. I used 1/2″ black for this project and cut off 6 coils. Thread the wire into the 6 holes of the project, leaving the side with the cross pieces up (near December).
  • Hold the end of the book, opposite the wires and insert the wires into the “squeezing” part of the Zutter Bind-it-all, making sure the wire is centered.
  • Depress the lever to squeeze the spiral shut.
  • Release the lever and pull out your bound book.
  • Turn the back cover to the back. Add ribbons and a charm for the finishing touches.
  • Now that you’re finished…put in all your family and friend’s celebrations: Birthdays, Anniversaries, Holiday, etc.
