It's my favorite time of year...pumpkin everything!!! Today's project is a Pumpkin made from punched paper strips, laced with washi tape.
To begin I cut 8 strips 12x 3.5 inch strips from cardstock. I punched both sides with Kreaxions punch #311. Then I unrolled a 13 inch piece of washi tape, folded it in half, and laced it through the punch marks.
I covered a toilet paper tube with matchin paper. I used brads to fasten the ends of the strips into one end of the tube. Then I folded those strips outward and over and connected all of them together at the top with another brad.
To form the stem I rolled a 3x3 piece of paper into a tube. I folded one end of the tube back into itself and cut four slits into the other end of the tube. These pieces I adhered to the top of the pumpkin.
To add to the charm of this home made pumpkin, just add a battery operated candle and let it glow all night. Check my blog Scrappin' Chaos for a list of supplies.
Hello! Ginni here! I'm sharing a simple page today...
These are pictures of my Granddaughter Molly and I in an ice cream and sandwich store called Polar Treats in Ketchikan, Alaska. She saw this hat and wanted it so of course we bought it for her. LOL! I used Kreaxions Punch #917 to create the border. The papers were double-sided so it was easy to use the cut-away pieces for embellishments all over the page.
Colleen here. Fall is in the air and my grandson went to the pumpkin patch last year so of course it just needed to be scrapped. I used Punch 307 to create the border under the photos as well as along the edge of the photos. I backed orange cardstock behind the border to make it pop. I used some of the negative on the reverse side under the border as well.
With school back and in full swing there is nothing better than a calendar that is updated to schedule all important things to do. Charity has a great project to share with dates and events marked to keep everyone organized.
Here are the single pages to view more details in her weekly planner. She used Punch 916, Insert C.
Joan made awesome book marks for the start of the new school year. She used punches 918 & 920.
Joan used punches 311 and 906 on these bookmarks.
The last set of bookmarks used punches 910 & 916.
Chris has a great school band page to share. She used punches 920 and 920 cut away strip.
Angela used punch #307 to punch my border and the decorative strip under the photos on this great fall layout.
Punch 307 up close for viewing the details.
Colleen made this for my grandson to hold for his first day of school. I used Punch 923 and used them for the top of the paper and then punched out the little square and then cut around them to make the square along the side. I will deconstruct this and use it on the LO about his first day of 4th grade.
Louise's page shares her son heading off to his first day of middle school. I used punch 906 to make the zigzag border, punch 916 around the journaling box, and punch 611 for the crown embellishment.
Thanks for stopping by today.. the DT is always thrilled to share their punched projects with you. Be sure to visit throughout the month when they share weekly projects all month long.
Hi Chris here today sharing this cool boys layout using my Kreaxion's punches. For this layout I started with the star template and added the 907 punch with the A insert to create the star doily in the background. I then added a border strip created using the #909 with the A insert. I saved the punch outs from the 909 to add to the corners and as accents to my page.
Joan B. here today and I’m sharing my second card using the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #920. For this card I used the punch with no insert and made border strips. To created this fun look I layered both the positive and negative border strips. Adding a few extra embellishments I found in my stash finished off the card.
Next Friday I'll be sharing my third card using punch #920.
Hello! Ginni here and today I want to share a quick and easy project with you using some scraps I had left over from another project.
I don't know about you, but I just HATE throwing away my extra pieces and leftover punched borders! I have to MAKE myself because I just keep thinking "I'll use them someday." So this is a quick and easy way to use those scraps and create a unique gift or element for your pages!
My fellow Design Team Member Colleen and I are on a forum together and she challenged us to use those Formica samples to create a tag. You can get the samples for free at your larger hardware stores. I chose these three samples because my husband and I are going to be building a new house in the next year and I want Formica countertops. When I realized I really didn't like the ones I picked with the decor we're going to have, I decided to use them for some tags to encourage my grandchildren to read books. I need to make more which won't be a problem because these are ADDICTIVE!!! :) Oh and if you don't want to use Formica samples, you can use any other thing that you'd normally use to make tags with. Just create your own background!
I had some leftover pieces of border using Kreaxions Punch #909. So I pulled them out and added some brads and bling. I adhered everything with Ailene's 3-in-1 glue, outlined them with a Sharpie pen and added some twine and fibers at the top. Quick, simple, easy and cheap!
I hope this has encouraged you to use your leftover pieces from your Kreaxions punches to create something fun and unusual! Happy Punching!
