What could be more fun than making your own mini books! I love my bind it all for just that.....making mini books. This product is great, you can punch right thru just about anything. Cardstock, you have to ask...chipboard...like butter...cd's, acrylic, coasters. Go ahead. I made my own Disney autograph book with chipboard and cardstock...big enough so I can have a siggy and a photo on the same page. Can't tell you how many people asked where I had gotten it. All those cute little word books that are so popular now, no problem. You can make your books anyway, any size you want. My children love it to. They are able to write their stories, illustrate them and then bind them for safe keeping.
Try it out, you won't be sorry.

This is definitely a top contender for scrapbooking tool of the year. It is SO easy to use. I haven't found anything yet it can't punch through. I love being able to make books whatever size I want them to be, not whatever size I can find in the store. MUCH better than just using binder rings. sb.com also sells chipboard packs which are handy for making your own books. One thing to note - there is a piece of paper in the box that says to do practice punches first to clean off the manufacturing grease. Don't miss that step or you'll ruin your first project!! I had learned how to use the machine before I bought it, and missed that warning piece of paper in my excitement to get started. Don't make my mistake! :)
I love my Bind-It-All and can't say enough good stuff about it. I use it in classes all the time because it is a dependable and durable tool. It works every time with as much maintenance as a hole punch--just empty the punched holes. It is portable, not too heavy, punches through multiple pages and various materials. Probably 90% of the mini books I have made since I bought the BAL have been bound with it. And don't even get me started on all the OTHER projects you can do with it--home decor, binding school reports, making notepads and gifts...it is wonderful. I never go to Kinko's for binding jobs anymore.

I love making the CD books with this little machine. It cuts through CD's and thick chipboard with little pressure. The binding looks so much neater on paper bag albums than the rings or just ribbon. The ideas are endless! The binding wire is available in different colors too! It's very light weight and easy to use. I would however suggest getting the adjustment bar if you are going to use the smaller wires so it will cut closer to the edge of the item and ease in turning the pages. A GREAT tool for the scrapper!

i got this product from my husband for mother's day and i LOVE it! its nice and compact in size but it is very sturdy! you can punch through several sheets of chipboard at once! and the nice thing is you can make any size project you want and the holes will always line up! it comes with a binding sizer to make setting the closure channel alot easier! making your own chipboard albums is a breeze and so much easier than purchasing the premade ones! makes great gifts too!
This is a sturdy product for the money. I had no idea I could get such a small, yet so useful machine for this price. I most definitely am already using it lots and I got it only a week ago. It was a little tricky to figure it all out in the beginning, but once you have, it is very easy to use. It takes up such a small space and I love the little plastic spacers too as they are very helpful. You can see what I have made with it here (first of 9 photos):
I love this product! I use it all the time. I make a lot of mini albums & this is the most perfect thing for me. It is very easy to use. It is lightweight so I am able to take it with me if I need to. It punches through almost anything! I have even used it to punch through my old credit cards before I throw them away! :) Great product that I have recommended & 'sold' to a number of people.
I've always wanted to be able to bind my own mini albums and this tool finally makes it possible. I look at album possibilities differently now...I'm empowered. The compact design makes it easy to store but don't be fooled. It can punch thorough all kids of materials (read the other reviews, they're really good).

Just made my first mini album with this tool and I can't believe how easy it was! I had a complete album bound and finished in no time! (can't wait to upload it!) If you enjoy making mini albums this tool is for you. It really does cut through just about anything and is well worth the price!! TRY THIS!!!
This product rocks.... it took a little getting used to and there is a downloadable set of instructions on www.zuttersisters.com that is a lot more comprehensive than what comes with the machine. It's very compact and takes up little space in my craft area.... it's AWESOME!!!
I LOVE IT....ive got this last weekend ive ordered more owires already. Ive made 2 albums so far and now im gonna start on post it note holders for Christmas this is easy to use.....i also got there project book and love that just wish the instructions were more detailed
I recently purchased this great little toy and I have to say I am totally in love with it. After pulling it out of it's box, I had a great little mini book created in a matter of minutes!! I would definetly recommend it to everyone!!
When I first saw the bind it all at my lss I pulled it off the shelf and read the box right then and there I just knew it was the answer to the question, (How would I go about making my own albums) Since I've owned my BIND IT ALL I have no reason th purchase any more mini albums Christmas I made desk calendars and gave them to the family they loved them. at first glance it may look a bit ockward but no worries it couldnt be simplier to work with. if you love to create your way, than this is the tool for you, add this to your stash and you will look no more.
