This punch has to be one of the most innovative in the current craft market. This one small punch can punch THREE different shapes, which can be combined with each other to make countless designs. The punch has three settings, one for each shape. The shapes can be used alone, by twos or threes and laid on each other directly or slightly off alignment for even more variety. You can add embellishments (like buttons or brads) to the center for another look. There are several EK Success punches available at Ben Franklin Crafts which have this three-way feature. You will love them! The second punch is another winner. It is a strip punch which allows you to create beautiful flowers by simply winding two punched 12" strips into a coil and gluing it down. Simple and a good use for those scrap strips from your 12x12 sheets. There are quite a few punches that are designed just for this purpose.
Finally for all you Hello Kitty fans (and I know there are lots of you in blogland), Ben Franklin Crafts is now carrying the cutest HK punch. Although she is little, she packs a BIG punch.....sorry I couldn't resist the pun. LOL! I did a sample tag to show the punch design but I guess I should have used better contrasting papers because it is rather hard to see Hello Kitty. (See the bottom close-up. It's a little clearer.) While shopping at BFC I ran across the package of little tie-on emblellishment by Martha Stewart that I added to the tag. They look like cell phone cords but with bakery string. I'll show you the other MS products I picked up in the same shopping trip on my next post. Tah-tah for now (TTFN) ...hope you'll visit again, soon.
