I was at JoAnns recently and found a great craft punch at a great price. It was a 1.5 inch circle punch for $6. But, the last thing I need to do right now is spend money on something that Im only going to use once or twice and then throw in my craft drawer, never to be seen again. If I was to buy this craft punch, I would need to come up with at least 2 or 3 things that I could do with it in order to justify the purchase. Crafty Rule #1-NO UNITASKERS! Everything worth owning in the Craft World needs to have more than one use. So, I bought it. And then came up with a few things to do with it.
I punched out 1 tissue paper circle and 1 card stock circle. Actually, in an effort to save my card stock, I used a cardboard tube from the center of a roll of wrapping paper and just flattened it. Then I glued them together and used a small hole punch to put a tiny hole in the top. Then I added a ribbon. Instant gift tag.
You can even add some stickers or little jems if you want. Glitter is always nice, too.
You can also fold a piece of paper in half and punch it with some of the fold in the punch and you get a cute little gift card.
You can use the tags as a wine glass marker, too. Oh, darn. Now I have this glass of wine here. I only poured it to use as an example for the picture but now I guess I have to drink it. Oh the things I will do for the blog!
So, now that my 1 glass of wine has turned into 2, Im sure the rest of this post will be interesting.
They look pretty cute around a bottle of wine.. Or maybe I just have my wine goggles on.
They even look cute on the tree as a simple little ornament. You could also make a garland out of the circles by gluing them on a string or ribbon.
So, Im pretty sure my mission was a success. I found more than 1 use for this great little addition to my craft drawer. AND I had a nice glass (or 2) of wine. What a great day.
