YIKESSSSS!!! Ok…this is my first tutorial – EVAH — se be kind! LOL – I’m no master so if the instructions are clear as mud – I apologize – leave me a comment and I’ll try to explain better. I’m trampling into unfamiliar territory here!
Many of you have asked me to tell you HOW I used my Martha Stewart Loop Corner Punch to punch the effect in a circle as seen on these two cards. Well, I did two different things and I’ll show you each one.
but first what you will need is:
Circle punch or template to cut circle (any size will do – as you will see my first size is 4.5 but it works on 2 inch punch just as well)
Scissors or paper trimmer
Martha Stewart Loop Corner Punch
Ok – now that the basics are down – lets get to the FUN details! 😉
- Punch or create circle
- Use the MS punch as an edger (if you have the edger and not the corner punch you could also use this) -as shown in pic. 1
- Cut each loop section separately- shown in pic.2
- Adhere to back of punched circle – pic. 3
- Flip circle over and get finished result – pic. 4
Easy enough right? Good.
Now for this card:
You will see I used a different technique to create a different effect by leaving the triangle “space”. This is done when lining up to punch the circle as you will see in the next set of pictures.
You will need the same supplies as above but this time there is no cutting each loop section! This one goes a little quicker once you get the hang of lining it up.
- Punch or create your circle – pic. 1
- Use your MS corner punch to punch your first set of loop – pic. 2
- Line up your next punch by putting the triangle edge in the space left from the first punch – pic. 3 & 4
- continue to line each punch around the circle being careful to also keep your biggest loop lined up around the edge of your circle until you have gone full circle – pic 5
