Card Petal Punch - Frankenstein Box.

Hi all,

Have recently been playing with my Petal Card Extra-Large Double Punch as seen on P.104 which completes two full processes in one punch. It punches once to create the inside score lines and again to cut the outside lines. Because both processes happen simultaneously, you only have to press the punch once and you get double the results!

Not only does it co-ordinate with the Level 2 Hostess stamp set, Cute By The Inch, but there are many great projects using this versatile punch. I decided to follow a tutorial and made a Frankenstein Box. I'm really pleased with it and can't wait to make more of his little friends :) It's perfect for holding a Drumstick inside too so a winner with the kids big and small.
