My house was becoming overloaded with little piles of paper, time to do something about it.
I happened across this video on youtube, and was inspired to alleviate the problem while preserving all the work.
I didn't have all the things that were used in the video that inspired me on hand, so I just improvised my own bookbinding jig, it works pretty good (from an amateur book binders perspective). It is certainly sufficient for the task at hand, and I can see myself using it again once my daughters pile has grown a little larger.
It defiantly helped go through some of the craft bins and art piles.It made for a fun activity, my son was even got involved in picking and sorting and best of all purging.
My wife was really pleased with this one as it reduced a lot of mess and made it into something that my son can keep forever, which is why I called it a keepsake book.
