Step 2: Take the hole punch (or awl, in my case) and punch a hole through your paper strips toward each of the ends. Yes, both ends. Make sure not to make the hole too close to the edge or it could rip through.

Step 3: Add a brad to one of the ends and secure it in place. Do not make it too tight though—it will need wiggle room.
