Belli Challenge #91 - Hole Punchs

Good Morning.  Today is Creative Belli Challenge day!! 
The Belli Challenge is all about using up your OLD STUFF and FORGOTTEN TREASURES!!!!
We would love for you to join us.


Tip : How to create a circular background using hole punches
This week we are using those hole punches that have been collecting dust.  I had to search for this tool.  I haven't use my Making Memories Eyelet Setter in years!  I have a Crop-a-dile as well and honestly don't use it very much either.  But, I'm glad I saved my MM Eyelet Setter, because it comes with 3 different tip/hole sizes.  So I was able to create a fun background using mine.


I started out with an inexpensive circle template I purchased a long time ago in the drafting departement at a local office supply store.  I used a pencil to lighty draw various size circles.  I used these pencil lines as guidelines to punch my holes.  So, I am glad I hung onto this tool.  The Crop-a-dile would not have been able to reach this far in.

                                                         

You can play along with us over at the Creative Belli Challenge Blog.
This week our sponsor is Sew Many Cards.  They are offering up a great prize that you can check out over at Creative Belli!  I used this cute "Olliver" digital image.  This set comes with several matching digi sentiments as well.
You can check him out over at Sew Many Cards.

Thanks for stopping by!!
