what a punch

I found a set of mini craft punches at the dollar store a little while ago and couldn't pass them up. There is a leaf shape, a cherry blossom shape, and (my favourite) an apple shape. I like the idea of having a bunch of cute shaped confetti, however, that would require some tedious hours of punching... which would then make it too darn precious to want to throw. Instead, I punched out some label paper and made some cute little stickers.

How awesome. I never knew they had such cute punches out, oh I've seen the stars and hearts before but these are adorable. Bet you find many uses for them in your decoupage work.

Oh how I love the dollar store. How fun are those punches? Would be great for some 50mm bokeh shots. I might have to stop by my local dollar store to see what I can find. Happy Thanksgiving Valerie!

I'm loving punches this year! Plain circle ones mostly but I just got a star one that I've made a couple things from.

What a cute idea! I bet those would be great for adding to packages, might have to pick one up!

I'm pretty sure punches like this are laced with an addictive substance, because I personally can't stop buying them and/or using them. ;D Those are cute ones!
