SET YOUR CALENDAR ALERT: Martha Stewart Crafts is introducing a new and completely innovative tool in the creative world of crafting: the Circle Edge Punch and Martha Stewart herself will be on HSN on Nov. 13 to launch it!
This new punch has many awesome features:
- Punch a continuous, die-cut border in 7 different sizes for paper up to 12 inches
- No pre-cutting of paper is necessary
- Trims the paper while punching
- Great for creating paper crafts such as doilies, cards, decorations and placemats
- Additional circle edge punch cartridges are available for a wide range of punch designs
This punch will be a great tool for my rosette projects as well as many other paper crafts. Kids will enjoy crafting with it too, it’s very simple to use. Here’s a fun holiday project for kids- Paper Angels!
I crafted my angel using fine glitter paper punched out with the Circle Edge Punch Eyelet Doily cartridge placed at the setting for a 6-inch circle.Once punched, I trimmed away a section for turning it into a cone shape. I also punched a doily circle of tracing paper (stack super thin paper like this with a piece of plain paper before punching,) and trimmed sections for wings, and punched a one-inch circle from cardstock for the angels face. Children may like to punch or cut out a photo of their cute little face to put on their angel. I cut a folded section of the glitter paper remnant and trimmed it onto arms. I used a hot glue gun to assemble the pieces, but other paper craft adhesives will work fine as well. A decorative cupcake liner glued under the angels skirt adds a nice touch of color and texture. A small section of doily edge from the punched tracing paper remnant can be adhered to cardstock prior to punching the one-inch head circle to add a bit of lace on the top of the angels head. Thread a knotted loop of string up through the cone and out the center top point to turn the angel into a Christmas tree ornament.
IMPORTANT: The Circle Edge Punch will be available exclusively on HSN and HSN.com November 13 only, while supplies last—and once they’re gone, the Circle Edge Punch won’t be available again until after the holidays.
