Menko (Kitty and Crow) Series - 04

Kitty and Crow 04
Putting a hole in each one seems to not be for everyone.  Again the reason for the hole is that the journal housing this series is held together with a Chicago screw.  This screw has a male and female part that connects in a "tunnel" in case you have never seen one.  Once screwed together you do not see the ridges of the screw.  Several of my students who have made a similar journal in class wanted to have a different method of holding their journal pages together.  Suggestions were a wrap-around binder, a ribbon, and a book sleeve like the ones that hold magazines.

I think the hole is almost indistinguishable, I had to hunt!
I like the idea and have always thought I would, but haven't tried it yet!
I so admire how you connect your treasures into series & folders John!

My mother used to tell of sending out top secret instructions to navy personnel in WW2. In offices of limited tools compared with today's world, they would use a large hammer and nail to wallop a hole through each stack and thread string through. This method served throughout my childhood to make 'annuals' out of our regular comics. How things change - but when every new idea requires more and more 'stuff' it's no wonder we acquire so much...
