Zutter Bind-it-all gives Maya Road Car an overhaul...

Zutter Innovative products helped me give my Maya Road chipboard car mini album an overhaul. The car was on display at my LSS and later used as a class sample. This little car experienced a lot wear and tear causing the spine to break. The car sat parked on my scrapbook desk waiting for a solution. As I worked on my design team samples, it came to me, why not update the spine with my Bind-it-all tool? I used a sharp blade to separate all the album pages, lightly sanded the edges to smooth the surface and then I touched it up with paint. The button wheels had to be removed to enable the front and back pages to fit into the Bind-it-all machine. Once all the pages were punched, the 1” wire put on, wheels reattached and ribbon tied on the spine, the car was good as new!
