"Before I rush out and buy several paper punches, I was wondering if you can use them on fabric or felt?"
The answer is YES! you can use craft punches on certain fabrics (though we haven't had much luck with felt, as it is a bit too thick). The trick to punching fabric is starching it first- this technique was developed for a story in Living a few years ago. Of course not all fabrics will work- as with paper, some work better than others, and the thicker you get, the more difficulty you will have punching through. Check out some ideas for your punched fabric below- you'll find a sweet Mother's Day card, as well as some easy gift ideas- barrettes, boxes, and bouquets, including how-to for starching and punching fabric.
