So I thought "Treat yo self!" and I ended up getting a Cinch book binding tool. As you probably noticed I have no idea where I am actually going to put it, but I thought about all of the cool things I could be making and knew I had to have one. I thought I could even make people flip calendars for the year using the Cinch and my Cricut Explore, I'll post those projects with instructions once I have completed a few.
In the meantime, you can see me unboxing my Cinch and going over some basic features in the video below. I found it to be pretty easy to figure out and the supplies for binding, like the covers and wires, are not that expensive. I found that to be refreshing since the tool itself is around $100. I opted to get the round hole version rather than the square punch just because some reviews pointed out that you could put eyelets in the round holes and they'd be relatively easy to find, other than that, the two machines are basically the same except for color, the square one is yellow.

So that covers it, I was able to get it up and operating in under 12 minutes and the instructions are very easy to follow, I have a feeling I'll be getting a lot of use out of this. So I've been promising a Minc hack, and I will get it together soon. Happy crafting!
