i’ve wanted a wire-o binding tool for a long time, but they can be expensive! we had one at my first job, and we’d use it to create gorgeous annual reports and proposals… and occasionally i’d make a journal or two for personal use. over the years i kept telling myself that one day, i will spend $300-$400 and get my own binding machine — in fact, last year i cut down a ton of scrap paper specifically for wire bound journals. but i just couldn’t make the investment.
a few weeks ago patricia of a little hut wrote about the cinch binding tool. how did i not know about this little machine?! it’s perfect for what i want to make, and at around $100, it’s much more affordable. mine arrived this week, and i’ll be playing with it over the next few days.
