Punch art - Make your own scissors!


Isn't this great? This is an idea that was shared last year and I've kept this picture on file as a reminder of how to make your own "scissors".
Wouldn't these look great on a scrapbook page about a crafter or on a child's school year pages?

If you are not familiar with the shapes shown, the blades are 2 shapes from our Word Window punch. The handles are 2 ovals made with both the Large and the Small Oval punches. The easiest way to do this would be to punch the Small Oval out of your Basic Black card stock and set it aside. Turn your Large Oval punch over so that you are looking at the bottom (back) of the punch. Slip the card stock back in - doing it this way will let you see where you are about to punch. Center the small oval hole within the large oval window and punch! (Repeat for the 2nd handle.) Adhere to the blades and use a small brad to hold it all together. Cute, huh? Now, go try it!
