Default Alternate Uses for Spiral Tab Punch

I have seen so many uses for the SU Round Tab Punch, but aside from journaling-what else have you used the spiral tab punch for?

One of my customers came up with the idea to use it for tabs. I did an example here:
//www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/538101?cat=500&ppuser=1236

and i have also used it for ribbon spots-I got the idea from Misermom.
Here is her example:
//www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/474395?cat=500&ppuser=4730
and mine:
//www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/478460?cat=500&ppuser=1236

I am sure you guys have more examples of how yours has been used.
Let's see them!!

There was a nother pic I saw where someone threaded ribbon through it, and another one used as candle flames.

Can anyone find those pics? I thought I had saved them but i did not.

I saw the candle reference somewhere, too. While I was looking for it, I found this one that used the punch as a frame. Very cool!

Thank You Meerkat-love that frame!!

I think the rolodex was made using the 1/4" square punch and not the spiral punch.

I believe the rolodex on the back of the Mini is from Pottery Barn.

I don't have the punch, but I bet it could be used for braces on teeth.

*trying to ignore this thread 'cause I don't need the punch....I don't need the punch....I don't need...*

Well, when I first saw the punch, I was jazzed about it because I thought it was used for punching paper that you would later use to cover those pesky spiral bound albums & notebooks that you could never cover because of that dang spiral binding. With this punch, you can stamp paper or cardstock, then cover right up to the spine of a book if the spacing on the spirals is about the same. Using it as a card decoration was secondary to me.

Then, I had this mini spiral bound book with these ugly green pages... about 20 of them. I got it as part of a kit and I thought "Ick, I'm going to throw this out because I will never use a 20-page mini book with these ugly green pages.

THEN THE LIGHT BULB WENT OFF!...

I tore out all of the ugly green pages and kept only the spiral binding. Then, I made some cute oversized tags for a tag book, punched the tops of them all and put them into the rings of the old icky spiral book... viola...an instant bound tag book (sorry, no pics and I already gave it away).

Then I got to thinking... the dollar store is full of these little spiral notebooks and such. I could bring a piece of paper I punched with the spiral binding punch and if the spirals match, I can use the spiral bindings to make my own custom books, albums, notepads, etc. I can stamp away and add or remove pages as I wish because the punch allows you to remove or add pages any time you want.

To summarize, I view it as a way to cover and bind books with sprial bindings. The cute "office" look cards are just the cherry on top!

I love the spiral and tab punches. I am keeping a special journal using the 5 x 5 mini art journal. I've embossed tags with the bug and stenciled over them. I spiral punched the bottom end and put them into the journal--flags. Also punched the bottom of coin envelopes and inserted them as pockets into the journal. Used the tabs to separate the sections of the journal. Now I want to try the ribbon threading talked about on this thread.
