Punched Flowers on a tag

Posted on 27 Feb 2017

Welcome to another blog post – today I am sharing with you a quick idea on how to use one of my favourite flower punches. Its a tricky one to use but the simplicity of the design is what is so appealing to me. I use it often and sometimes even get to punch a border along the edge of my papers with it – when I have the patience to line it up properly. But it makes for a fun effect which I will share with you next week.Today however I got to highlight the back of my punched flower with some gold paint and popped it onto a tag.
step 1 – Select a patterned paper to use for your punched image.

step 2 – Punch the image into the paper.
TIP: the punch does not reach that far into your paper, making it ideal for perfect alignment with each punch when using a straight edge as your guide.
When you punch a border using this design it makes perfect sense.
step 3 – Punch the flower out of your larger sheet using a circle punch.
Punch another white cardstock circle and add some gold acrylic paint to it and leave to dry.

step 4 – Align the punched circle with the gold circle beneath and adhere them together. The gold makes for a beautiful addition to the punched flower.


Adhere the circle to a coloured tag and add decorative elements and a sentiment. Quick tags like these are perfect for attaching to a gift
and even using it on a project like a card or layout.
