I ♥ paper punches.


Because here's what you can do with them...

Tags for the Valentine bean bags for my niece and nephew (Presley and Stone):


I used foam stamps for the letters. Have you ever used these? They are meant for use with acrylic paint, but I love the look of them done in ink!

A little extra... Here's my view this afternoon as I tried to get some half-decent light for this shoot. See the teal colored thing behind the patio post? That would be Carrie's thrift store bookshelf purchase from last weekend still sitting on our pool deck waiting to be washed and taken away. (eh-hm.)

And the clouds in our beautiful Arizona sky blocking the light.
I really didn't mind...
~sigh~
What a great day.

That sky! How I long for sunny skies and big puffy clouds.
I love punches too, but don't have too many of them, they are kind of ridiculously expensive over here. Maybe I'll get me some Martha punches next time I am in the States (that is bound to happen again).
I like your little tags.

What clever gift tags, I feel the need to buy some punches!
So envious of your blue skies with fluffy clouds, trust me, it's very different in England at the moment!

Very cool gift tags! I'm loving the look of that pool..we would never have the weather for one of those here!

Yes, I love punches too. I must get myself a couple of decent scalloped ones. I only have plain... they cost so much money!

Blue skies...I wish! It's just grey, grey and grey here.

Oh my gosh, LOVE the wrapping! SO cute!!! (and sorry that my bookshelf is still there...)

I'll swap you your sky for mine ~ grey & dull, and trying to snow!

Love those punches! I'm going shopping tomorrow for a new punch - I want a circle with a decorative edge - I may well be getting a scalloped one like this :-)

Blue sky, I remember you.... *sigh*.....

Love your tags, what a simple way to dress up a package. Thanks for sharing.

Mom said...

Okay. What size is your circle punch? I bought the scalloped one and the circle ones I have are either too big to show the edge or too small and too much shows. Maybe I'm buying the wrong brand. I've added 7 punches to my collection in the past 3 weeks (killer coupons from Michael's!) and still haven't found the right combination to get that look! Love these tags! xo
