In addition to using binders, we also use a special binding tool to create individual notebooks for some topics and purposes. There are a variety of these tools available on the market both online and at your local office supply store. We have found the Proclick Binding Machine to be the least expensive and most versatile.
This hand-operated tool will zip holes all along the edge of your paper. Then you simply insert the flexible spine and zip it closed with the little plastic zipping tool. So easy to use! They easily zip open and close making them perfect for growing notebooks. You can create your own sketchbook, journal, or other type of notebook. You can also snip the spines to make smaller size notebooks like my kids’ quiet time journals pictured below.
We absolutely love this tool!
