J is for Just a Note

I've wanted to create an office theme card for a while and couldn't resist when I saw these curly braces in the A*Muse Barney clear set! Inspired by SU Office Accoutrement and SU Notations designer paper... I used the Crop-a-dile to punch the role of holes down the left edge - love that you can set the hole depth to easily punch the same distance from the edge. I wrapped some wire around a pencil to form the spiral and then threaded it through the holes. A folded scrap of green and a corner rounder simulate a tab. Then I made faux spiral punch holes on the white layer using a square hand punch and a few snips with scissors.

SU cardstock, Fluid Chalk ink, Palette Hybrid ink, Prismacolor marker, staple, corner rounder, white micro binder clip, 1/8" circle and square hand punches, wire, dimensionals, Art Glitter and Sakura Quickie glue pen.

I can't believe you wrapped a wire around a pencil for this. It rocks!! Beautiful. I also love what you are doing with the amuse polka dot alphas. Too cute.
