And in more papery goodness, I thought I'd share this great tip for making tabs on the top of a paper project form the book Playing with Paper.
Click on this page from Playing with Paper to enlarge and see how punching a row of circles in a strip of paper and then folding it in half makes a great tab style hanging element to simply slide a rod or in this case a stick through.
