P is for Punches (and Paper Pumpkin)

I love the Stampin’ Up! Punches! They make it so easy to add interesting layers to a project. I have plenty of photos and punched projects to share with you today as well as my Paper Pumpkin Preview, videos, and special offers. Let’s get started with a quick 2 minute video showcasing one of my favorite punches, the tag topper punch.

Oh My Gosh!!!  Did you just love the candle wrap she showed in the video?! What a clever gift presentation! Here are some projects I made with the tag topper punch.

The tag topper punch can be used for cards, gift pouches, as well as tags and more. I love making gift sets that all go together.  The measurements for the gift pouch came from Hannah McCurley (StampinbyHannah).  Start with a piece of 4 x 4 1/2 Designer Series Paper and score on the long side @ 2″ and 4″.  Add tear & tape along the edge to adhere. Punch the top with the tag topper punch and staple the bottom closed. I decorated the front using the Balloon Bouquet Punch and stamped the sentiment from Thoughtful Banners. This is the perfect size treat holder for miniature candy bars.

I embossed the matching gift tag with the Confetti Embossing Folder and punched coordinating balloons.  The sentiment is punched out using the Duet Banner Punch. The Basic Black Bakers Twine is used on all 3 projects to “tie” it all together. 🙂

 

You can watch the short video below to see how I made this gift box topper using the Festive Flower Punch. The sentiment on the tag is punched with the Decorative Label Punch.

Here’s a little trick I found on Pinterest for using the Elegant Butterfly and circle punches to make bats. So cool for Halloween projects!!

As you can see in the photo below I have Plenty of Punches! The Stampin’ Up! Punches can store flat or standing on edge. It’s best to use your whole hand when punching.  These punches work better if you set them flat on a table and then punch using direct downward pressure. Happy Punching!

Here are some past projects I’ve made using punches.

  2. Hi Jeanie, Perfect Post, as usual. I do use my punches more than my thinlits and framelits. Love your tag and treat holder. Oh, this was one of my favorite PPs too.
