Punch It Out: 3 ways with paper punches

I love collecting little paper punches – there are so many designs out there and they’re perfect  for adding a quick DIY twist that looks fun and professional. If you have these or have spotted these but you’re not sure what to use them for here are some ideas to get you started:

Gift tags
Use these stamps to add cut-out detail to your gift tags. It just helps your tags look a little more interesting and unusual.

Gift wrap
Use your stamps to cut out shapes from a a band of paper and then wrap around your present for a fun two tone / two design effect.

Confetti!
Yes hooray! Make your own confetti! If you want to create a large amount (for an event for example) this will take forever BUT for a little sprinkling of fun paper shapes in a card or present these are perfect. Top tip – fold layers of tissue paper together and cut in one go to speed up the process.

    1. These ones are from Tiger Stores but you can get them all over the place – worth searching online if there are specific shapes you’re after 🙂
      They’re so fun aren’t they!
