Have you ever used a paper punch? I’ve amassed a small collection of them thanks to my work with the 12 Months of Martha team and I must say they are quite addicting! They come in all shapes and sizes – from a simple circle punch (something I think every crafter needs in their toolbox) to amazingly intricate designs like the one I used for today’s project - all of which you can create in a matter of seconds - no scissors needed!
I got a sneak peek of this Martha Stewart cut and fold "abstract heart" punch that will be available in stores by late September. I thought the designs created by the punch were so beautiful they were practically a piece of art – so why not showcase them as one?
I love the 3D natural created by folding the paper on top of itself. I used a memory box frame to show this, rather than a regular picture frame which would flatten the medallions.
This project only requires a short list of materials since I used the handful of two-toned colored papers that come along with the punch:
Supplies for 3D Paper Punch Art
- Martha Stewart Abstract Heart Cut and Fold Punch (available in stores late September - mark your calendars!)
- 6 sheets of two-toned colored paper (included with the punch above)
- Memory box frame
- Colorful paper for matting (I used this one)
- Foam mounting squares
