Blog post from me are going to be off and on in for the next month.... because I am getting married!We have actually been engaged for over a year but like all things, I have been procrastinating on getting things ready for the wedding.
We are having a japanese style wedding, and cherry blossoms are the theme. To decorate I have been cutting out a bazillion paper blossoms to decorate things with. I am so happy with the paper punches I got. The paper blossoms look super cute and they are consistently the same shape, not to mention the time saved if I had decided to cut each one out by hand. However at this point my paper punches are getting really dull. I am having to push harder and harder to get them to punch out anything.
My saving grace. Aluminum foil.
You simply fold aluminum foil until it is 2-3 layers deep, and punch away. It sharpens your paper punch, so you can keep on making a bazillion cherry blossoms.
