Moxie Fab blog where their current challenge is to use punches in an innovative way. I love punches, especially border punches so my "innovative" way of using one was to create a paper bow :) I used an apron lace punch and punched 3 strips to create my bow. I trimmed the strips down to being very thin and then glued all the pieces together making sure to round the bow part out. I added a flower and button to middle to hide the messy part of it ;)
To create my flower stems I used a plain scallop punch and punched the paper on either side so that it created a wavy, almost rickrack type stem.
I also used a large scallop punch to create the edge of my card. I did for the base as well as the pp that I adhered on top. To tie in the apron lace bow I edged the card with thin strips of the same punch and even added one to the inside so that the card looks balanced open or closed.
Finally, I punched some bitty MS butterflies and added some pearls. The tiny hearts are die cuts from the middle of the PTI tiny tag I used for my sentiment.
I hope you like all the punchy goodness! I sure did enjoy creating this card and I think I could do without any other floral set now that Rosie Posie is with me:) Thanks for stopping by!
