Ten Things Tuesday again at Practical Scrappers and we're all about using border punches. I nearly didn't sign up for this one because I don't really own many punches, and then I remembered some seldom used American Crafts Knock Out punches and I merrily signed my name. Then I remembered that I have a Christmas set, not to be dissuaded I pulled them out a started playing around.
I discovered that the Christmas tree punch looks a lot like lacey edging when done in strips.
That realization caused me to punch every single link in a chain I was going to make anyway - counting down until the Scrapbooksteals Retreat.
Fifty links later, I'd had to sharpen and lubricate the punch a couple of times. Let the count down begin!
