With a few discarded mailing tubes, construction paper, and Fiskars Squeeze Punches you can craft these characters in under 20 minutes.
The AdvantEdge™ Punch System features slide-and-lock technology that makes punching perfectly aligned borders easier than ever.
Negative Space Scraps
1. Cut out the negative punches in assorted sizes for a whimsical look. This layout is super simple.
2. Line up all of your photos and text block at the center and filled in the leftover spaces with scraps. If the space is too small for the leaves, search for other scraps that can tie in with your page.
Long Paper Scraps
The next category of scraps is paper strips. Jazz up simple cardstock strips to make them a feature. With chevron patterns still very trendy, create an embossed version using Corrogate Paper Crimper.
1. Trim strips of paper to the same width
2. Run each strip through the crimper at an angle, being sure to switch the side you start with each time so the crimped stripes would alternate angles.
I wanted to create some coordinating flowers, but my strips weren’t wide enough. I’ve run into this problem before and usually ended up punching out circles or ovals and adhering them around a circle for petals to build up a flower. As I was looking for my oval punches, I came across the brand new scissors squeeze punch and saw petals hidden in the handles. I get such a kick out of using shapes in unintended ways!
Punch out only the top half of the scissors, punching four pieces for each flower. I didn’t have enough strips left for solid flowers, so I mixed and matched for a fun look. Fold each petal in half to crease for dimension and layer a set of two together as shown. Adhere two together and top with a button at the center.
Punch a shape from small leftovers to add here and there adds a little something extra. If you gather a bunch together you can make a higher impact.
1. Lightly trace a shape or letter/number with a pencil onto your layout and adhere punched shapes along the line.
2. Working in small sections, trace the line with the edge of a glue stick and the add shapes instead of adding adhesive to the back of each little shape.
3. Add foam adhesive dots to a few more shapes to layer for dimension.
By pairing your scraps with fun Fiskars tools, you can get high impact with little work. You can turn small or boring bits of paper into dramatic embellishments.
