Goofy Journal

 The Fearless Crafters Journal Program was so much fun.  It inspired me to make MOOOORE!!! 

For my birthday, I bought myself a book binding machine.  Today, I finally got to play with it a little bit.

 First I cut out some cool looking paper from here and there.  I trimmed them all up so that they were basically even.

 I'm supposed to be able to punch holes in 15 sheets at a time but it takes a little getting used to. 

My first batch was a mess.

 So I punched all the sheets separately, which worked just fine.  I forgot to take pictures of using the binding mechanism, which I screwed up but that's how you learn so I just kept moving along. 

 It looks fine here but closing the wires (squeezing them together) was hard. I suspect it just takes getting used to.

 See, the pages stick up and don't turn smoothly.

But, if they did, I would love this goofy journal.  It only took 40 minutes to bind up and that's while learning how to use the machine.  I picture many more journals in my future.
