As the saying goes, "No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow." After a cold winter in Indiana, I am more than ready for springtime!
In anticipation of spring, let's craft with Fiskars' new Spring Special Edition punches and create some whimsical tags. With a variety of squeeze punches, lever punches, and border punches, it's so easy to get crafty and complete these one-of-a-kind tags.
I'm sure you'll agree that these cute tags would be the perfect "icing on the cake" for any scrapbook page or packaged gift this season. You can even use these designs for greeting cards!
Let's get started!
(All tags measure 3" x 5". All corners rounded.)
Tag: Hello Spring
To create this mini scenery, border punch the grass and work your way up. Add a flower to the handcut stem, then split the Leafin' Around punched shapes for the leaves. Scatter a few multi-colored mini butterflies and a cloud in the sky.
Tag: Butterfly Kisses
Add movement on this tag by punching several scroll shapes to show the path of the fluttering butterfly. Having the punched shapes "bleed" off the edge of the tag adds interest, too. To continue with the butterfly theme, I added a row of border punched butterflies at the bottom of the tag.
Tag: A beautiful day
Wings = petals. The Love Takes Flight large squeeze punch had me stumped until I discovered that I can create a large flower by assembling the wings in a circular fashion.
Create a 1 1/2 inch vertical border using the Leaves border punch. Assemble the large flower using 10 individual wings to make the 10-petal flower, then top this with 2 layers of Daisy flowers for the center. So easy!
There are so many ways to use these punches in different and innovative ways. These Fiskars punches will add "wow" to any of your spring-themed projects. Have fun playing!
