and the winner is......

Here's a little birdhouse box card I made for Fiskars.......


I took a basic box card base and altered it a bit - I measured 3cms down from the top on the tall back piece, then cut into a point. It was easy to use the shape as a guide to cut out a little roof. I was going to use a brown wood pattern paper but thought that even little birdies can have pretty pink houses.....


These power punches make short work of cutting out the thickest cardstock...



I punched out some flowers using the bloom punches, and attached them to strips of sturdy acetate.....


and punched out a tiny bird (his wing is a little heart punch)....



On to the winner of the tag maker duo punch who is:

KRAFTY KAREN

Congrats Karen, email me and your parcel will be on it's way

Giveaway!

I have an unused, but out of packaging Tag Maker duo to give away today....

This is a great little tool, it punches out tags that are the perfect size for banners or sentiment tags on your cards, leave them blank, or punch the holes and set eyelets all in one tool.....


All you have to do is go HERE to like the Fiskarettes Facebook page, after leaving a comment with your name on this post. I will draw a winner next Wednesday. Good luck

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you all - a little belated, so that's my first resolution down the pan before the new year has had time to arrive....

Sharing a video I made for the Fiskarettes page on Facebook today, I can't tell you the problems I had making it. This was the fourth attempt, one of them I filmed the whole thing upside down! My new table camera clamp makes the camera a bit wobbly when I have to do stuff like punching, so I have to figure out something to hold it other than my desk.







I'll be back tomorrow with a giveaway, rather a nice one actually, so pop over and see me then..... x
