Top 10 Basics: Punches

Punches are one of those tools that you can use on nearly every project, and in a variety of ways. There’s a lot of techniques based around punches and a variety of different types of punches too!

Basic punches punch out a shape. Some shapes are simply, some are fancy, but they all serve their purpose…
Builder punches punch out a few different shapes in one punch and then those pieces can be used on their own, or put together to create punch art. For example, this owl, bird and cupcake punch!
There’s also border punches that give the edge of your paper a nice finish…
And corner punches that do the same for, well, corners!
If you’re on a limited budget and can only afford one or two punches, I’d recommend the Modern Label and/or Decorative Label punch. Both coordinate with many stamp sets and can be used for a lot of different projects. Of all my stamps, they are definitely the two I use the most!
