I was pretty sorry when I first started with mine. I 'm not at all a crafty person so if I can get it, you will too! It was a lot of trial and error. The more I messed up the more determined I was to do it right. Don't feel bad if you have a hard time at first. Just keep at it. And don't be shy about asking for help. I did and everyone was great.

My favorite sizes are 1/2 inch (inside plants logbooks) and I also like the 3/4 inch and 1 inch for logbooks for use out in the field. I bought some 3/8 inch wires and to me, they are basically useless--too small. The 1 1/2 inch size is way too big to be practical to me, at least.

Good luck! You will enjoy it! It's a lot of fun.

For small logbooks for small containers: 1/2 inch. For larger containers (thicker and 2" deep) , I say 3/4 inch. The 1/2 inch only holds about 30 pieces of card stock.

I make a lot of large logbooks, so I use a lot of 3/4 inch. Depends what you are making...

You can always bind with ribbon or leather cord if you need a different size.
