Playing with Punches - Tutorial with Danie

Hi there!

Our DT member Danie  is sharing a fun tip with you today, she is encouraging you to look at your punches a little differently to get more bang for your buck!

She started with this punch from EK Success:

Which creates this shape:

Danie has created a short video to show you how she utilized both the positive and negative cuts from her punched pieces:

Here is a still shot of the cork pieces that Danie cut from her sheet of cork:


Step 1:   Simply hold your scrapbooking foam cork and punch out corner cuts (minimum of 2 times - but depending on how many you require) - I wanted 2
Step 2:  Remove the centers / leftovers from the punched out cork.  I used my fingernails but you could snip them using scissors.
Step 3:  Design your card /Place them on your card
Step 4:  Embellish your card / or layout 

And a couple of close ups of her Christmas card using both the negative and positive punched pieces:
