This week is all about Punch Boards, and one of our favorites is the Square Punch Board. This handy tool is perfect for planners, card layers, scrapbook pages, tags, pocketing memory keeping and other small scale projects. It’s great for bulk projects like holiday cards, invitations, gift tags, and more.
Simply slide the guides to the desired size square or rectangle using 1/8 inch increments between 3/4″ x 3/4″ and 3″ x 4″. Then press down to punch your paper. Move your paper over until it lines up with the guide and punch again. You can punch continuously with no waste across your entire paper!
The first way to use the Square Punch Board is to punch several small squares from different color patterned paper, and create a patchwork style background. You can use this technique on handmade cards, scrapbook pages, framed art, or other projects.
The second way to use the Square Punch Board is to create planner squares. Most planners have multiple sizes of squares and rectangles, so the Planner Punch Board is perfect for that! You only need to buy one punch instead of three or four.
The last way to use the Square Punch Board is to create a block or grid design scrapbook page. By combining different size patterned paper squares or rectangles, photos, and journaling blocks you can make an eye-catching yet easy layout that showcases your photos and memories perfectly.
Thanks for stopping by. We hope these ideas have inspired you to pull out your Square Punch Board and start creating. Be sure to come back each day this week for more punch board project ideas!
