Scrap Tech Tueday - Corner Punches

Hi Ladies and welcome to Scrap Tech Tuesday.

This week i wanted to show you an inexpensive way to make your own diecut shapes using your corner punches. With the popularity of spellbinders and other dies this is a poor mans version that will still give you some great results. i used 2 different punches to show you the different effect that you can get and then used both on a layout.

Here are the 2 punches that i used - but any that you have will work too...


Firstly i cut out some circle shapes- the bigger the circle the easier it is and the better effect with some punches but have a play ...
You have to line up your punch- looking at the bottom of the punch as you line it up - just above the edge of your circle and punch hard. This is the result.


Then watching very carefully on the bottom of your punch line it up as best you can just above the edge and to the right of your last punch...

Once you have punched the whole way round it will look like this - with triangles between each punch - these can be popped out ..


The finished diecut shape


I then used a different punch to do some smaller circles in a different colour.


I then created this layout using the three punches circles...this is my second daughter Ella who has the KEMP hair (my maiden name) hence the wordplay in the title.
