Love Your Punches
A while back, Nat posted, It’s hip to be square. I am going to confess, I didn’t give it a go but having recently rediscovered my own square punch ( rediscovered, as it has been hiding! ), I am going to show you what I did.
I have one of those 2 sizes square punch made by Creative Memories that an agent persuaded me I can’t live without. It turns out, I didn’t use it much. I was fortunate she didn’t persuade me to go the way of CM too! All those expensive albums…
Today I am using papers from Crate Paper Storyteller collection, DIY Thickers and some Studio Calico Wood Veneer shapes.
What did I do first ? You guessed it, punch a lot of squares out of the patterned papers. My squares are 1 1/2″.
I wanted to display the papers in a grid but decided to go diagonally so I marked a few grid lines diagonally.
I decided to use twine as grid lines. To make it more interesting, I tied some bows along the twine and only to mark out a selection of lines rather than every single grid lines.
I apply a thin line of glue ( I used diamond glaze ) along the marked line and glue the twine.
