Mask Technique for Punches

Ever try to punch in a specific part of a card, only to find that the punch has moved or you didn’t center the punch as you expected?  Here is a GREAT punching trick that will help you line up your punches every time.  It’s a great technique for projects like this, where you need your Blossom Punch shape right in the center of each note card layer.

This little note card set and matching Fancy Favor Die gift box are one of the 4 projects from my current Stamps in the Mail Club round! (learn more)

I am in love with these colors!  They remind me of rainbow sherbet, which is my absolute favorite Baskin Robbins flavor…oh, and Daiquiri Ice, YUM.  Until it’s available this summer, I’ll content myself with stamping in Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Peach Parfait.

Mask Technique for Punches:

  1. Punch a piece of sticky note so the punched shape includes a sticky edge
  2. Place this mask over the paper, positioning where you’d like the final hole
  3. Punch directly over the mask, lining punch with shape.  VOILA!
