Happy Sunday everyone - today's post is informational.
We received a question from Lyn, and wanted to post the answer here in the hopes it helps you too.
Binding rings: These are metal rings from 7gypsies that we carry in the store, available in a variety of colors and sizes. Lyn wanted to know how many pages would fit in each size binding ring.
To answer Lyn's question we created three mini-albums to see how many pages each size binding ring would hold, to show you their capacity.
The books we constructed consist of two heavyweight rectangle coasters for the outer covers and Papertrey Ink cardstock for the interior pages. Papertrey cardstock is pretty thick, so if using another cardstock brand that is not as thick you might be able to get a few more interior pages with each size.
7g small binding rings (1-inch diameter - black ones used here) - approx. 25 pages
7g medium binding rings (1-1/2" diameter - red ones used here) - approx. 50 pages
7g large binding rings (1-3/4" diameter - cream ones used here) - approx. 70 pages
Mini albums like these would make great dream journals, and great gifts as journals for several folks on your list. Use for card and paper crafting ideas, sketch pads, or just to keep in the car with a crayon or two for wee ones' during trips. Simply cover the front and back with decorative paper and embellish as desired.
If you feel the binding rings need dressing up, you can add ribbon, or string a few charms - even tie buttons to them! The only limit is your available time. Best wishes for a great week!
