Make your craft flower punchies spectacular!

Did you ever buy a craft punch that you thought was pretty, but when you tried it out, it just seems sort of lame?  Take a flower punch, you punch one and it just looks blah. Well, all you need to make it look wonderful is to punch a few in 2-4 colors and preferably several sizes, add a little chalk around the edges for color, and then a great secret is to take a stylus and run it down the center of each petal. This will crease the flower petal making it more 3-D and a little more realistic.  Then layer the flower in several colors and place a fancy brad in the center. Another idea is to punch a flower in green, and cut off several of the petals to use as leaves. Simply glue two or three “leaves” to the back of your flower.  There you have it, flowers that are much better than the expensive ones at the craft store 🙂
