In our June issue of Living, in Good Things, I used one of our Martha Stewart Crafts deep double edge trim punches to dress up everyday items to create lots of party accessories. Use what you have on hand: cakestands, straws, toothpicks, plain paper cups. You can cut away at punched shapes to come up with infinite variations. If you look at the cakestand above, I snipped the trimmed shapes to create different drippy tendrils and even cut out individual leaves, and adhered them around the edge onto a thin strip of double stick tape. I glued little flowers bunches to toothpicks to create cupcake toppers.
Here are a few more ideas that we couldn't fit into the magazine!
If you're inspired to try any of these ideas, it's the perfect time. All this week (until Sat., May 26th) our punches are 40% off at Michaels!
