Hi Stampers, welcome to my Creative & Chaotic craft room! Today’s project features another challenge from Broke Stampers Unite. This week it is punch art; and it was one of my ideas. When it came time for me to actually make something, I was wondering what the heck was I thinking??? I started to think about what holidays are coming up. I am jumping ahead to St. Patrick’s Day.
This will be a project that I will be making with my stamp club in February. It is a Gherardelli chocolate holder. For club I will pick a carmel flavor or something with a gold wrapper. I only had peppermint chocolate.
So, can you see which punches are used? I used the Bird Builder Punch for the nose and mustache. The Bow Builder Punch for the bow tie. The derby is the 2″ Circle Punch and the Word Window Punch. (I actually cut a strip 3/8″ x 2 1/2″, then I punched the ends to make it curved on the ends.)
His hat needs a lucky clover. I made it with the heart from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack. The clover is attached to a clothes pin with glue dots. The verse is stamped and punched with the Word Window Punch and placed on the clothes pin as well.
His “body” is a piece of DSP (designer series paper) that is 2″ x 5″ folded in half to wrap the chocolate. I punched the ends with the Scallop Tag Topper punch, even though it doesn’t show from the front side.
