Designed to cut thick and heavy mixed media, these shears feature short blades ideal for cutting in tight spaces.
Now you can create with thick and tough materials like aluminum cans, cardboard, balsa wood, milk jugs, foam and more thanks to our exclusive new punch design.
1. To begin, use a computer and your favorite font to spell out "Happy New Year" and print on plain paper. Cut out each letter individually, turn them over and trace around the letters on to the back of the glitter cardstock.
2. Cut out each letter using the 6” Amplify® Mixed Media Shears. These shears will give you clean cuts with minimal effort and more time to enjoy the party!
3. After you are done cutting, punch a hole into the top of each letter, and string twine.
4. Use the large Circle Thick Materials Punch to cut multiple circles at once from your glitter cardstock. No more struggling with basic punches; these punches will power through thick cardstock and several other materials – even with the glitter overlay.
5. Sew the punched circle shapes together, in a chain, using your sewing machine. Don’t worry, if you don’t have a sewing machine, you can use a piece of adhesive or glue to adhere the circles to the twine. Hang your banner and paper chains on the wall to create the sparkly photo backdrop for your festive holiday celebrations.
This backdrop will make your home party ready in no time. It is sure to draw the attention of your guests to create some photo memories to share!
