How to Use a Craft Punch and Tips!

Carla Craft punches are the easiest companion to having fun, delicate and intricate art pieces. Just by selecting a puncher design, punching with cool paper and mixing and matching shapes, you can make cute invitation cards, captivating picture frames, hip scrapbook pages and funky gift boxes!

Always feel free to experiment. Play with shapes and be inventive!

Here are the awesome suggestions from our artists: 

  1. Think of LAYERING! - Add heights and dimension to your artwork by combining and positioning various punched out shapes. Get some ume flowers, position the petals at different angles and before you know it, you’ve made a 3D rose already!
  2. Don't forget to CUT! - Cut punched out shapes and combine them with another color.
  3. SNIPPING is kickin'! - Redefine a punched out shape by using scissors or a second punch. Alter the vinca pattern by using a teardrop shape or by trimming unwanted portions with scissors.
  4. Photo NEGATIVES are the bomb. - Negatives can be used to decorate the borders or accentuate the corners of your artwork. They give really nice texture and style to an artwork
  5. POSITIONING is key! - Glam up your masterpiece by accurate positioning of punched out shapes.
  6. It's okay to SUBSTITE - If you don't have that shape you want, learn the art of substitution. There's always something you can do with what you already have.
  7. DETAILING and borders - Use Artline fine-tip pens, Colleen color pencils or Pebeo paints, Elmer's glue shimmer and shine or glitter pens and even more to give more life to your designs.
  8. EMBELLISHMENTS don't hurt. - Pop up your artworks even more by adding aesthetic elegance through use of beads, ropes, tapes, buttons, caps... you name it!

 Now, it's your turn to create!
