You met the Punchlings on Sunday, now you can meet their parents.  This is the second card I made using punched paper circles to make 3D ornaments, this one uses a 2″ punch.  It doesn’t sound much bigger than the 1″ I made the punchlings with but the results are quite surprising size wise.

This card is 5″ x 6.5″ and as you can see, only two baubles fit, any more and it would look too crowded.  I used red washi tape for the bauble “ribbons” and also to frame the sentiment.  I also used the Memory Box Precious Snowflakes die but only used the bow part again.  The sentiment is from Penny Black.

The instructions for making these baubles are to punch out three circles from scrap patterned paper, score and fold them in half with the patterned side innermost, glue three of the halves together and use something like a clothespin to hold them while the glue dries.  Then when you’re ready, apply a little glue to the back and stick them to your card.  Very simple and quick to make.  They will also fold flat for posting which is a big consideration these days.
