Happy Friday! This week the product focus for our Fabulous Friday projects on the Sisters in Stamping blog are the mini punch packs. After my monthly downline meeting last night my super-talented team member Gaylyn Pantana offered to stay and help me come up with a project. I knew I wanted to use the Merry Minis punch pack from the Holiday catalog and create some sort of punch art since I have a hard time doing "mini." Together, Gaylyn and I came up with this poinsettia flower idea... don't you love it?!
I put together a tutorial to show you exactly how we created the punch art...
Tombow multipurpose liquid glue is the best for putting your punch art together. Give it just a second to start to dry and become tacky so it doesn't squish out.
Begin by attaching two of your petals (ornament punch) to the 1/2" circle.
Continue adding the petals around the circle piece.
Attach the Primrose Petals star piece to the center of the front of your flower.
Tip - use the pointed end of a bone folder to press the pieces down.
Flip the flower over and attach three ornament pieces for the larger leaves.
Add the Christmas trees for the smaller petals.
Embellish the center of the flower with champagne glitter glass.
Here is the completed poinsettia flower.
I attached my punch art flower to a piece of ribbon that I tied around a petite pocket cut from crumb cake card stock and run through the Big Shot with the Petals-a-Plenty textured impressions folder. This pocket is perfect for a fun-size chocolate bar!
Gaylyn also came up with a finished pocket - hers is just a little different from mine. See below to see how she created the little tag...
Use the Christmas tree punch to cut off a small portion on the end of a strip of card stock (scraps work great!).
Next, line up your card stock in the word window punch, making sure to center the notch. If you're going to stamp a sentiment, I suggest you do that as your first step... much easier to punch it out after it is stamped than to try to center your sentiment on this tiny tag!!
You can even cut the curved end off for another quick and easy banner.
Here is a photo of both poinsettia pockets to inspire you (mine is on the left, Gaylyn's is on the right).
