WORK OF ART...

Each one of us is a WORK OF ART... 

Trust

I used the old *Horizontal Slot Punch to obtain the ribbon feature. But you can also draw a 1/2" line and use your 1/8" circle punch five times on the line to get the same slot shape.

Trust2

I made the rickrack with a die-cut and paper...

Trust3

Matching envelopes are always so pretty...

Trust4

The Trust God Stamp Set has eight encouraging greetings...

and the Tasteful Trim Bigz Die has four versatile designs...

HEXAGON...

Here's a little different way to use your Hexagon Punch...

Hexagon

The envelope (above) has three hexagon pieces

on the outer flap.  Easy peasy!

Hexagon2

HERE'S HOW:  1) Cut a piece of dark cardstock 4" wide x 3.75" high.  2) You will be punching from each side as far as the punch will reach in.  3) Find your exact center and make a pencil mark.  4) Punch the center image first.  5) Punch the top image.  6) Punch the bottom image.  7) Repeat on the other side, eyeballing each placement as you go.  8) Adhere the dark punched cardstock over your standard size light cardstock.  9) Add 3/4" circles and brads or Candy Dots with a Stampin' Dimensional to each center.
