Most crafty people own a couple of punches. I got my first few when planning and making our wedding invitations. Typically for me I went for a simple design, telling myself that if I had to make over 50 of them, they had to be relatively quick to make. In the end I simply punched hearts down the long side of the card, and stuck a colour themed ribbon behind. Simple, but quite quick.
Until I made my heart cards recently I never used the shapes punched out by a punch, wanting the appropriate hole! One thing that inspired me is a Pickmaster punch as you buy it to punch out a useful object….
Pickmaster punches punch out a plectrum from suitable materials, such as old credit cards.
(These photos were taken by my phone in a pub, so a bit dark!)
What a great idea! I am sure that most people who play the guitar need more plectrums and this is a fun way to make more. Most people have unused loyalty cards at home!
If I knew any guitar players I would be buying this as a Christmas present.
