My New Binding Machine!

I was contacted by MyBinding.com to review their fantastic binding machine! I first went to their blog to find out more about them, and boy, was I impressed! They have so many amazing products and they have sales, so they are definitely teacher friendly!

When my package arrived (and it was quick!), I immediately tore into opened my boxes to see what goodies they sent me! Wow!!!! I am in LOVE!


Here is the cute binding machine! Let me tell you, it is so light weight! I love that little ol' me can lift it and carry it around and doesn't feel like I am lifting weights!  At my school, we use to have a binding machine and it was so heavy! Carrying it to my classroom when I wanted to borrow it was such a chore! I love that I could move this one all over my house with ease!

(Ok - the instructions do say that it is 6 lbs., but after lifting my 55 lb. son, I think 6 lbs. is light!)



I decided to bind some of my little boy's kindergarten work. I usually file it, but thought it would be fun to bind it!  I decided to use the clear covers they sent me as the cover page.



First, I had to tap the pages to make sure they were lined up.

Then I placed them in the machine (punching channel) and pressed the arm down so I could punch the holes.

Super Easy!


Success!

Then I put the binding comb into the metal fingers and pressed the handle down to open the comb to insert the papers. Next, I put the papers into the comb and lifted the handle.


Sweet!

Now his Kindergarten papers are all organized and put together in one little book! Gotta love that!

Thank you MyBinding.com for allowing me to review this wonderful machine. I truly am in love!

My class will thank you this year when I get to bind all their cute projects! Can't wait!!! :)

Wow - that is great! No one at my school knows how to use our binding machine and it is so ancient it probably wouldn't work even if we did - it just sits and collects dust while we go to Staples to get our class-made books bound :( I'd love to have a working binding machine!

Oh man Cheryl. What I could do to help differentiate my instruction if I had one of these binding machines. The possiblities are endless. Can't wait to see what else you'll do with this.
