Happy Tuesday!!!!! Did that title catch your eye? That’s right, I used the Tag Topper Punch as a way to close my card!!!! Oh how I love using the punches in “out of the box” ways! It makes the punch sooo much more worth it! I won’t lie, I first looked at the Tag Topper Punches (Angled and Scalloped) and thought, “I don’t make tags that often to need a special punch.” Then I saw this adorable box, and this cute bookmark, and this amazing closure below and just HAD TO HAVE IT!
How beautiful is that??? I am loving the colors and the closure AND the Watercolor Wonder DSP!!!! 🙂 For this amazing card, all you need is a standard card base (5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″) and then with a pencil you will mark 1″ up from the bottom on the left and right side (shorter side). Then slide your piece of cardstock into the punch. You will not be using the guide but going over top of it and down into the blade area. Looking at the backside of the punch, find your little 1″ mark and line that up with the edge of the punch and PUNCH! Do this on the other side as well. Then you will put it into your Stampin’ Trimmer and cut the tabs above and below your punch. Score one of the tabs so that it will fold in and then score your card from that same scored tab side in (to the left) 4-1/4″. This will then make your card standard side and all folded and ready to decorate!!!!
I hope this helps a little better! I am more of a visual person so I know it helps me!!! 🙂 I hope you enjoyed this Tutorial and try it out! I would love to hear what you think and see some of you projects using this technique! Post in the comments below!
