Four days to go!  And have I mentioned that even though these punches are heavy, we are remaining consistent with our shipping policy?  All U.S. orders over $40 will receive FREE shipping!

Today’s project showcases the BRAND NEW Mega rectangle punch.  I thought the shape lent itself perfectly to creating custom slides!

1. Punch rectangle from cardstock.  With pencil and ruler, draw lines between the first and last sets of scallops.  Then draw lines horizontally on either side of the two central scallops.  This creates a quick grid that will help with perfect punch placement!

2. Using the slot punch from SU!, invert it and line up the cross points on one side of the rectangle.  Punch to create slot.

3.  Repeat step 2 on the opposing side.  Flip your slide over to allow all the pencil marks to remain on the back.  There, you have a completed slide!

Add to it and embellish it as desired.  I did some paper piercing & added some brads to finish it off.  You will love how easy it is to use this particular technique to create a focal point.

An added tip…this patterned paper was just green & white.  I went in with a small dot stamp to add some pops of purple ink in the flower centers.  It was very easy and really helped to unify my project.

Ink: fluid chalk ink from Clearsnap
Stamps: sentiment from Faux Ribbon by Papertrey Ink
Paper: White Knight Green from Stemma
Other: green brads from American Crafts, ribbon from Making Memories
