We R Memory Keepers Cinch Bundle
Good morning all you crafters,
Today I am posting up some pictures showing what I got with the WRMK Cinch Bundle. This item # 386-586 is sold out and I hope they have it back for the next up and coming craft show. I think for all that I got that it was a good deal. There is also this one item # 404-516 .
I did a review of my new Wrmks Cinch Bundle I am new to this company and I am new to The Cinch. Meaning this is my first purchase from them and never used the cinch before. I have been looking for a good inexpensive binder for my crafting journals and for making calendars.
Like I said in one of my posts here on the Home and Craft forum I will be rebinding an old calendar that I made with the WRMK Cinch.
On the box it says that you can punch 20 sheets of light weight paper at a time. I am guessing that would be light weight card stock, Printer paper and parchment paper and any other light weight papers.
In the instructions it tells you to punch on scrap paper to clean the oil off of the punches. I used printer copy paper to do this. I also punch the paper first with my three ring binder punch to see how the Cinch would punch over something already punched here are my pictures. this is just the first punch right out of the box.
Here is the WRMks The Cinch in its box. I got the square one as for this bundle that is all that was available.
Here is the WRMKs The Cinch out of the box by it self notice the nice little lock on the left hand side
Here is the WRMKs The Cinch with the bundle of goodies that you get. Lots of wires in all sizes and Chip board backings in all sizes and instructions.
Next is a picture of my printer copy paper with the three ring binder holes.
Next is a picture of using the WRKs The Cinch to punch over the holes. Not bad so I know it can be done.
Next are some pictures of just punching to clean off the oil from the punches. In some of the pictures I need to learn how to correctly line up the pegs and get the perfect cut which can be established with the WRMKS
with the Cinch. In the instructions when doing this you really do not have to line up the little punch switches you just are punching to clean of the punches. this scrap of paper is from writing out the words Merry Christmas as a test run using my ScannCut Universal pen holder and an ordinary ball point pen.
I think the punch holes are great for adding in any size of the wire and if you like to just play around with maybe writing a little story for your kids or yourself this is great to cut down the cost of going to the box store to have your writings bond of unless you are looking for a hard cover book binding then that is different. For those of us that are just maybe doing writings for our selves and family and friends this is novel no bun intended there.:smileyhappy:
For myself this is perfect all my craft journals my calendars, recipes, pictures, anything I want to book bind I can now do it.
Maybe someday I will write that book and send it in to a publisher. If I did then I would bind with The Cinch first all the chapters in order and let the publisher read it. Then if it was a worth while book to publish then let them do the hard cover binding.
There you have it my first small experience with WRMKS The Cinch. :smileyhappy:
Your HSN Friend,
Happy New year to everyone I hope your New Year wishes all come true for all of your:heart:
Well here I am again. I did say in this post that I would post up my first Cinched book. I did it:smileyhappy:
What you are looking at is a scrap book that I created a while ago. I just will use it for notes and shopping lists and mostly will end up pulling out the paper as I use it.
I will decorate the front in someway or maybe not. Not sure at this point.
I just wanted to post it up and show you that I did cinch up a book.
I used parchment paper and I did line it up with my computer and printer.
My point here is to show you all that any kind of hand crafting can be done to make a book.
With that said, you can use the chip board that you get with and for the Cinch. I did not I used the backing of the parchment paper mat. You can really decorate the front with any kind of media and really make it your very own creation. I would suggest to decorate your front cover first.
With that said you can also create something in your word program with pictures, titles, give your book a name etc. Then print it out, laminate it if you have something to laminate with. Then cinch it out.
Use the proper wire and you are set.
Speaking of wire, I use the .625= infraction 5/8 inch. this is a little small for my book. I should have really used the 1 inch coil wire.
As I mention in this post. I do have a calender book that has something like 250 pages. I would need at least a 2 inch wire to use with that book. I am looking but so far not finding it. For now it will remain on the 1 inch loose leaf rings that I first used for it.
Well with this all said, Check out my pictures here. The first picture is of the front of the book it is not decorated just really very unfinished. What the binding looks like. Notice the three larger holes used
to house the three loose leaf rings that I originally had holding this together.
Next picture is of my parchment paper with my own lines made on it from my word program and my
printer. Plus showing the binding that I used.
The last picture is of the pages turned to show you all how the binding looks in the center.
This really worked out very well was not hard to do and it has a flurry of ideas in my mind of books and things to bind up.
Well there you have it just a small example of the use of The Cinch to create a book out of paper and chip board.
That reminds me you can add dividers to make sections in the book, you can also add in a ribbon book mark connected to the binder. Decorate it anyway you wish. So many ideas for this crafting tool. Very nice very nice indeed.
Thanks for taking a look and checking out my posts.
Wishing you all the Very Best For The New Year:smileyhappy:
