How Can I Use This Giant Paper Punch?

One of my favorite things about fall is the leaves on the trees. They’re turning colors already, and they’re going to be an explosion of colors soon. I even love the sound of them as they rustle in the wind. I’m telling you, just take me to the trees and I’ll be happy.

So it should be obvious that my favorite paper punch in the entire craft room is a giant leaf. I can use it in spring with all the shades of green, but it’s just not the same. I would much rather use it in fall when it can create a rainbow of autumn colors.

Here are just a few ways I use this large punch. If you have one in another shape, you can use it in much the same way.

* Punch solid colors and ink-distress the edges for a worn look.

* Punch patterned paper that will coordinate with your background and accents.

* Tuck them behind your focal point to create a frame.

* Line them up on a strip of paper to create a themed border.

* Tie several of them together to create a 3D embellishment.

* Make decorations by layering die cuts and embellishments on top of it.

* Thread them together to create a paper banner.

* Use it as a stencil by drawing around it.

* Make some negative space art by laying it on your paper, coloring the rest of the background and then removing the punched piece.

* Attach it to a gift tag for a one-of-a-kind present.

* Use them as name tags for your fall tablescape.

* Cut paper squares to put behind it for a layered embellishment.
