Challenge: Punches

Good morning! I'm here with another challenge for you this week. Since there are some new punches coming this reveal in the shop, I thought a punch challenge would be fun. Punches can be so versatile and fun, for this challenge, we want you to use them creatively. Push yourself to see them in a different way and give new life to your older punches. See how I layered borders here I punched with THIS punch (my new FAVE!)...


Check out how Lisa trimmed the edges off the labels punched from THIS punch to make those sweet little tags...
Use your punches for paper piecing like I did with 2 different sized circle punches on this butterfly here...

Be sure to link to link your layouts on THIS thread by Saturday at midnight EST. I'll draw a winner Sunday morning for a $5 GC to the shop...perfect for your reveal shopping! :)

Funny that you mention punches, I was just going through my stash last night realizing that I need some new ones. Congrats on what looks to be a great new kit, can't wait midnight.
