Today's project shows you that the Envelope Punch Board is not just for envelopes! A fellow demo and Pinkies team member, Caroline Hallett, has done a fabulous video showing you how to make all three sizes of these lovely crackers which you can see here. Caroline makes some lovely items so, while you're visiting, take time to look around the rest of her blog for some great inspiration.
I made all three of my crackers with Whisper White cardstock, tied with Whisper White Grosgrain ribbon with toppers made from various flower punches, inked around the edges with Silver Encore Metallic ink and finished with a circle of Silver Glimmer Paper. The leaves were punched with the now retired Build a Blossom punch.
When you watch Caroline's video she suggests trying the Mosaic Punch instead of the Envelope Punch Board so I tried this on the smallest cracker and it worked brilliantly. Thanks for the tip, the inspiration and the measurements Caroline!
I will be back tomorrow to show you October's card I received from Alison (Card Swap Group).
