No, it's not a new snack. I love punches but I know I'm not getting the best use out them, especially not my corner punches or border punches. I even have books, mostly outdated, that showed me how to use various punched out shapes to make other shapes.
So I wanted to get all this wonder new stuff into one area, this thread.
Share what you've learned. Please link to blogs or images in the gallery here, so we can all learn.
BTW, just got this idea from another thread where someone was asking about a technique to make medallions.

How to Make Flowers Using a Corner Rounder
scrapriguez: I have inquired a lot of border punches recently. I do not have any corner punches, which I have wanted to purchase. Then I found (which I have to find the video) out how to creat corners using the border punches. It is very easy and I love the look. I did these two lo's using fiskars border punches and creating corners/frames. Will come back when I can find the video.... I think I saved it. There is another video that was useful with punches as well..... have to find that one too.

Circle Medallion with Corner Punches
Idea with corner punch and circle decorated punch
You can use the large 3" scallop, a flower, and square punches to make adorable chick cards. I'm thinking they'd not only work for Easter, but also for cards to a "cool chick" you know.
I made one and it's in my gallery. I am making another now...I was almost done when I messed it up and now I have to fix it. ARGH. They're cute, quick, and easy (if you pay attention to what you are doing, unlike me! LOL)
