  1. Select a binding color and trim to a length you would like. 
  2. Put the paper into the binding spine, peel off both adhesive liners, and adhere the front and back cover to the adhesive.
  3. Insert any accessories like the Thermal Cinch Collection Bookmarks (sold separately) by adhering them to the internal pages with adhesive. Make sure to clip the main part of the bookmark away from the spine. 
  4. Plug in the Binding Machine and flip the power switch to the on position. The light on the front part of the machine will stop blinking and beep when the machine is heated up and ready for you to create your binding!
  5. Place your pages with binding in the machine and press the timer.
  6. The light will stop blinking when the binding is ready and bound (approx. 2 min).
  7. Remove your creation from the machine and let cool next to the machine in the slot the machine cover creates. This will take about 5 min or until the binding is cool.
