I love my new binding machine! These are just a few of the notebooks I've made since yesterday afternoon. I pretty much cut up anything cardboard that I could find. This afternoon I went to the thrift store and found some interesting, and some hilarious, album covers to use. I stopped at Wendy's on my way home from and the lady working there made a comment about the albums I had stacked on the seat and I told her about my binding machine. Apparently she's got a bunch of great album covers (without the records) that she's keeping only because she can't bring herself to throw them away. She loved the idea of making them into notebooks and I ended up with her number and she wants me to have them! I'm going to find out which is her favorite and make it into a notebook for her. My favorites so far are the one made with a park Livery schedule (it has green pages!) and the jumping guy with guitars (very odd record!).
I made a couple slapdash style covers with grommets and all also. Putting grommets that close together isn't much fun, and spacing them out looks better but doesn't open as well. I need to come up with a better plan for those!
