More From A Punch

Hello Everybody!
Day 4 of Crafty January, and its my turn to share! Incase you are wondering why January 2016 is "Crafty", you should hop over to Crafty Kick Start 2016 for some enlightenment.

[and by the way, if you didn't know about it, then you've already missed 3 awesome DT posts]

I am focusing on paper punches today, as most of us own them, and hardly ever experiment with them. You can get a lot more than one design from your punch. In the below video, I demonstrate how you can use an edge punch, to create a design in the center of your paper / cardstock.




Now coming to the simple round paper punches. In the below video, I show you how to round the edges of a die-cut, using a round paper punch.



I hope these techniques help you in your projects!

Happy #craftykickstart16

xoxo

  2. I love the technique you showed with the punch. Will definitely try it out. I also love the negatives you get after punching a paper, they seem great for stenciling and creating backgrounds. Loved the post.
