Supply list

My little guy had a blast using some of Fiskars new Lever Punches along with some recycled straws and patterned paper scraps to string together this cute paper punch Lei.

Instructions:

1. Punch out 30 or more various flowers from a mix of patterned paper.

2. Use the 1/16 inch Circle Hand Punch to create a hole in the center of each flower.

3. Use scissors to cut 1/2 inch segments from the drinking straws.

4. Cut a 24 inch long piece of stretch beading elastic and temporarily tie a knot at one end.

5. Start threading the flowers and straw segments. Be sure to vary the pattern to make it more interesting.
