When I saw the small 1 inch Clear Cut Punches, I was very happy. I have the larger Circle Clear Cut Punch and I LOVE it. Because often you want to punch out something in the middle of the layout or mini album, like maybe a pattern from a paper. Then these punches are perfect for it!
My daughter is in first grade and she started school last year. It was a very exciting day for her. In Germany the children get a school bag. I made it myself with my daughter. And so that these memories remain forever, we also took some pictures of our daughter with her school bag.
I wanted to assemble the photo from many small parts. First I printed the photo 3 times. Then I punched a lot of small squares out of the photo with the Square Mini Clear Cut Punch.
For the first photo I punched out the parts in a row. For the next photo at different places, because the parts are to be put together afterwards.
The photo is placed on the lower part of the punch and the magnetic disc on top. So the photo does not slip. Then it is punched out with the upper part by pressing on it. So very easy!
I haven’t punched out the third photo yet. Because I only wanted to see where I still needed parts of the design when I was assembling it. It was a lot of fun. It was like a puzzle. Step by step I put the pieces together with 3D glue dots.
Because of the different height of the parts, the photo has got more dimension. I really like the effect. I tried it for the first time and didn’t know how it would turn out. I will definitely do it again. I think with the Circle Punch it would look great too.
When the photo was finished, I punched small squares into the layout at different places. Additionally, from a pink cardstock. Then I decorated the squares with sequins, stickers, tassels etc. Everything that fits a school child. Here there are endless possibilities.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and see you next time. Have fun with the Mini Punches. Yours,
