Punch Happy

Punch Happy

After putting together my son’s Halloween costume, I had a bunch of green scraps left over. Rather than putting them back into my scraps bin, I started punching out leaves with an old EK Success leaf punch.

I think I need to do that with more of my scraps. Might be something good to do to keep my hands busy while watching TV.

After making a little pile, I started gluing them down into a ring– instant wreath! I probably should have sketched a circle out in pencil before starting, because my wreath ended up a bit lopsided.

A few tiny flowers punched out helped finish the wreath.

The background was stamped with versamark ink, and a sentiment from the same Close to My Heart set helped finish up the card. Well, that, and some liquid pearls.

Hardest part about this card? Not getting glue on my fingers, and when I did get glue on my fingers, not getting the glue in the wrong place on the card. Yeah, I really should have used tweezers, but where’s the fun in that?

For those of you not versed in Minecraft, he is an Enderman, holding a grass block. We glued scrap pieces of green paper to a moving box we had lying around to approximate the pixilated appearance of Minecraft grass.
