Tutorial: Birthday Card Keepsake Book

Little Lovelies has a really cool tutorial for an idea I've been seeing around recently. It's a spiral bound book made with greeting cards.

I tend to toss most of my cards, but I've saved all the ones from my wedding and bridal shower and all the ones from when Austin was born and my baby shower. I may do this using some binder rings or the black spiral binding I just picked up for my mini flash card notebooks (pictures of these to come next week).

  1. This is brilliant, much better than the stacked just tied with ribbon I have in boxes. I want her fancy punch thing too, would help both Pat and I with work and home stuff.

  2. You can get the Cinch machine on Amazon. It's not that cheap though :( Which is why I'll probably just do it with my hole punch and binder rings.

  5. Yeah I had researched the Cinch and another product, the Zutter Bind-It-All and both ended up being just too pricey for me. I do have I think the Cinch on a wish list somewhere but for now, I'm using my Crop-A-Dile to punch holes manually. It works. It's time consuming, but it does work :)
