Happy Birthday from Minnie Mouse

Punch Art is so fun. I'm always in awe of those crafters who can look at a punch and see something completely different than the obvious. Think of the Tulip Punch as the head of a reindeer with antlers from the Sprig Punch. This is just 1 very simple example of Punch Art. Many Punch Artist work is very elaborate with them thinking WAY out of the box with their ordinary shape punches. I'm not in that league, but am certainly intrigued and learning to look at my punches differently.

Here is another simple but Oh, So Cute, example of Punch Art. You can use circle punches and dies to create Mickey and Minnie silhouettes. Add a die cut bow tie from the Suit & Tie Dies and you have Minnie Mouse's bow!

This is one punch art we ALL can do and is sure to bring smiles to Disney fans from 1 to 101. Click on the following link to download a Free Project Sheet to make this card. Download Project Sheet - Minnie Mouse Birthday Card
