December Product Challenge ~ Punches

Hello Caroline again. And yes today is Sunday. I'm sad to say the weekend is almost over :o(

So I had the best intentions of crafting ALL day today ... well you know how those intentions go. Turn on my cricut .... well attempt to turn it on and nothing happens. Really??? Are you kidding me??? I NEED to craft. I NEED to get Christmas cards made I don't have time for a broken cricut. Check the power cord ... firmly in the cricut and firmly into the power outlet. Okay I know I'm getting a new E2 for Christmas but it's not Christmas yet and I NEED my cricut NOW. Well fast forward ... my power cord is dead. Dig out the baby bug power cord and I'm back in business or so I thought. In walks hubby and he needs help with his computer. Finish that and it's time to get ready for dinner ugh. Today has not turned out to be my crafting day.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO needless to say my project for you today is unfinished. Well sort of unfinished. Let me explain. While sitting in my craft room trying to think of what today's challenge should be I sit and stare at my wall'o'goodies and it hits me. We have all (or most of us) been enabled to purchase paper punches. I mean who doesn't love those Martha Stewart Punches???? As I'm looking at them I'm realizing that I don't use them as much as I should.

So the light bulb goes off and I decide today we are going to use our punches. In trying to work on Christmas cards (that's a whole nother story) I see my Martha Stewart Branch Punch. Okay I'll use that for a Christmas Card.

So while my punch item is complete the project is not. That being said here is my inspiration for you today

A wonderful Cricuteer Lorraine has a fabulous video on how to make these wreaths using this punch. I've been so afraid to use this punch cause it never turns out the way I want. But whala Lorraine to the rescue.

Now it's your turn. Let's see what you do with your paper punches!!!! Happy crafting.
