Hey friends!! It’s Kylie back with you all today with a fun project to share featuring the Sequin Punch. I love this tool so much! Not only does it punch but it also embosses too. With the Holiday season approaching I decided to make a Christmas garland featuring lots of the punched sequins.
When punched, each sequin measures around 2 inches in size. This punch works perfectly on regular paper or cardstock, but since I was creating a Christmas project, I decided to use some mirror effect cardstock. Once punched each sequin had a lovely metallic looking finish. I chose to work with red, green and rose gold.
To create my garland I used my Banner Punch Board to create even banner shapes effortlessly. To begin, I cut 3 cardstock pieces to 5″x 7″ and 3 to 4″x 6″ prior to being trimmed down in the banner punch board. Once the fishtail ends had been trimmed, each smaller banner piece was added over the larger banner pieces using foam adhesive.
Punched cardstock rounds were added to the centre of each banner piece and using alpha stickers I have added the word ‘JOY’.
To assemble my garland I used a 3/8″ satin ribbon and began threading on each sequin, alternating colours. You could add as many or as little as you like to your garland, depending on the size you are after.
Once I had everything threaded onto my garland and in place, I found a helpful tip to keep your sequins from folding over or shifting, is to add a small amount of clear sticky tape to the back of them to hold them in place. This will also keep them evenly spaced once hung into place.
Once complete all I needed to do was hang my garland into place, adding a lovely touch of sparkle thanks to the sequins punched!
So that you can see how my garland came together, I have also filmed a short video for you to see:-
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! I hope my project has given you a little inspiration for your own crafting.
