Pin book uses flexible bound paper to create a tidy space for storing little things.

Step 1: Materials & Tools


1 Case bound magazine, not stapled!
1 Rubber band, or 2 if you're feeling adventurous.


1 Metal ruler
1 X-acto knife, with a spare blade or two if you have it.
1 Pen/marker
1 Cutting mat (not pictured)
1 Drafting triangle (optional)

<p>this is very nice, great idea</p>
I've tryed but mine is dirty : (
Hmm. Try popping in a fresh blade and giving it another go. It's surprising how much of a difference this can make.
Yes I've re-tryed and it's now clean thanks !
I just made one for my xacto knife blades, but I used a zip-tie in place of the rubber band, and tied it onto the edge of my work self so I have easy access. I wonder if this could be made on a larger scale with cardboard for files, knives, knitting needles, pens, pencil, brushes, what have you.
I was actually inspired by knife blocks while I was coming up with the design so it was cool to read about your use with X-acto blades. I like your mod with the zip tie and I have a few ideas for experimenting in a larger scale as well. Thanks for the comment!
This is great! Looks awesome too. :D
That look great , I'm gonna try
Oh, this has given me an idea!
