Punch addict here with my latest effort. I've blogged something like this before here but I decided to expand my repertoire to see if I could make something a little more complex. I used a variety of shapes; hearts, circles, daisies, etc. to create these flowers that are made more interesting by folding and curling using a toothpick and my fingernails. This is a great "in front of TV" craft.
I've included the instructions for a few of the flowers. Your flower shapes will be determined by your punches. I've tried to demonstrate the folding, curling and spiraling techniques. See what you can come up with.
For the most part, I used tacky glue. A glue stick was used to attach the label and the stems. I balanced each composition with a flying insect. These seemed to call for some kind of label. You can download and print my labels here.
I made 12 of these, framed them in identical black frames and am going to hang them in a grid over my bed. They look cool all together (hey, even individually)
Pretty sharp with an old book and a few punches, if I must say so myself.
