Binder pages

I forgot to explain the pages in the binder from Wednesday's post. So here we go,

1. Using a page from the book, center it along the binder ring and mark where it over hangs. The page needs to fit inside the tabs at either end. With a paper trimmer cut away the excess.

2. Align the three hole punch along the binder and using a screw driver adjust the silver knobs to match the ring clips.

3.Center the page in the hole punch - I just eyeballed it, punch holes in the book page, place in binder and close it, gently tugging the page tight against the clip. Mark the excess page sticking out of the book and with a paper trimmer cut away the excess. Again making sure the page fits inside the cover.

4. Now you have a template to cut the rest of the paper for your new and unique binder.

Since I was using different types of recycled paper not all of the pages are the same width or length. It's part of the uniqueness of the project.

If you have any questions let me know.
