To finish the book, I used white wire in my Bind-it-all machine. I was really pleased with how this book turned out. I had a little trouble with the binding, trying to keep the wire in their tidy circles after being pressed in the machine. It seems to pinch them too much. I'll have to fiddle with that a bit and figure out how to fix that so it works great everytime.
I'm going to miss this finish on the Hodge Podge hardware. Stampin' Up! is retiring their current finishes and apparently bringing in some new ones. I love these aged finishes and will be sad to see them go, but I'm always excited to see what will come next!
