My new laminator and paper cutter and a Giveaway!


MyBinding.com asked me recently to review their laminating machine and paper cutter! Let me tell you, I was over the moon excited! I already reviewed their binding machine - which I loved and can't wait to use in my classroom! {You can read about it here}.

Haven't heard of Mybinding.com? You can read their blog or go to their store to find out more about them {Go ahead - You will be impressed at what they have to offer - but hold down the Ctrl button while you click on the link to open a new tab so you don't lose your place on my blog!} 



 



If you click on the pictures it will take you to mybinding.com so you can read more about these products.

Wow! These products are so compact! They will be perfect for my tiny classroom! And so lightweight!

I wanted to laminate my flashcards from my I Can Read the Alphabet pack. After I printed them out on cardstock, I put one page in a laminating sleeve.


I plugged in my laminator and turned it on. After a few minutes it was ready to laminate! It was so cool that I just put it in and it fed it through! (okay, so I am easily amused!)



After it laminated, I wanted to use my Papermonster cutter to cut the flashcards apart. Well, I guess the laminate is too thick because it would not cut it! :(   Oh well! Guess it is back to the old fashioned scissors! :)

 

But it does cut the not laminated cardstock beautifully! It will be great for making perfect straight edges on paper or cardstock (as long as it isn't thick laminate - will have to try my school's thin laminate and see if that works!).


Now, guess what??? Mybinding.com has generously agreed to let me do a giveaway! I am so excited that I get to give one of you amazing followers the chance to win your own personal laminator and one person your own personal paper cutter. Are you excited?

Please use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter this giveaway. This giveaway ends at 12:01am on 8/18/12 and is open to Residents of the Continental USA.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Congrats to Jennifer K. - she has won the laminator!
Also, Congrats to Brenda R. - she has won the paper cutter!

Disclosure: I received free products from Mybiding.com. All opinions are 100% my own.

Ooohhh... I forgot to tell you what product(s) I like... UMM yeah that's hard to choose! I love the binding supplies, I can just see making tons of class books and having them last all year (especially if the pages are laminated!), I love the laminators... and I have to say I got a kick out of some of the other products they have!

I love the idea of a laminator :) I'm "laminating" things at home now by putting them in page protectors, cutting off the holes, and taping with scotch tape. Cheap :)

I would LOVE one of their binding machines1 the one at school is so old and worn out that no one even remembers how to use it! I would love a machine I could actually use for binding rather than a paperweight!

This looks like a great machine. I love how compact the laminator is! Super idea!!!

Holly said...

Oh my gosh, you don't know how much I would love to have one of these in my classroom. Actually, there are times when I choose *not* to laminate something for fear that our school laminator will ruin something I've worked really hard on {has happened more times than I can count - and has actually put me into tears!!!}.

I have the Scotch laminator for home - but would be tickled pink to have another for my classroom. Would be cool to compare the two...I have a feeling they don't even come close! This one can do so much!!!!

Crossing everything possible thing in hopes of winning!

I think an electric hole punch would be such a luxury item. I would love to have it. FYI - after trimming flash cards and such with a paper cutter, I found the corners to be sharp and dangerous. I use a corner rounder (from my scrapbook supplies) to round them off, make beautiful edges.

I love the electric hole puncher. I would love to win the laminator and paper cutter. I laminate a lot and am always running to Mardel, since our school will not let us do our own lamination.

Becca said...

Sigh...in a dream world, I'd be able to get one of those fabulous school use laminators for our whole school to use. The one we have is all cobbled together, and only has one heat setting/speed left...and doesn't work on anything too thick. It would be amazing to have a new one...and these look like a dream.
