Creative Paper-Punch Techniques

Stacked Punches

Design by Lisa Storms

Love the look of chipboard but can't find the perfect shape? Fake it by stacking several cardstock layers of the same punched shape. The flowers on this page are multiple layers of chipboard-color cardstock topped with patterned paper.

Editor's Tip: The sky (or at least your page protector) is the limit when layering punched cardstock shapes. Experiment with the number of layers to see if thicker or thinner shapes look best.
