Tool Extravaganza - Mary Ann


Welcome back to our second week of Tool Extravaganza!

Today we have Mary Ann Jenkins sharing some fun project
using the i-top punches!

One of my most favorite of the Imaginisce tools are the i-top punches. Although the punches were really made to punch paper to use with the i-top brads, I like using them just as they are. Combine that with a trend that is hot in paper crafting right now and you come up with a really fun banner!

Here is a banner I made to welcome summer using the extra large punch. School isn't out for us for another week, but I already have this hanging as we are counting down the days.

Supplies used: extra large i-top paper punch, papers - Surf's Up, Bloomin' Hot, Cheers!, Celebrate You, oversized die cuts,ribbon, alpha letters


For this sweet little card, I used the smallest i-top punch, folded each shape in half and strung on twine to make a mini banner.

Supplies used: small i-top paper punch, papers - Bloomin' Hot, Walking on Sunshine, Celebrate You, oversized die cuts, cardstock, twine, toothpick

Thanks for stopping by the Imaginisce blog for another day of our Tool Extravaganza!
