Coffee Time

Hi all, weekly slot again as to how the ladies got on today.

We continued the theme of punches from last week but this time using them as apertures.

Firstly, punch out a circle in the top corner of your card. Be careful here to leave enough space to put double sided tape between the opening and the edge of the card. Taking another piece of card trim it so that when the cards edges are equal the backing card does not reach the centre fold. (If you take it to the centre there is a chance that the card won't shut properly). Carefully trace the circle through to the backing card and then using the punch upside down you will see where to punch out. Suspend a charm to the front card. - we used the teacup from the Charm B pack - using thin guage wire. The easiest way we found to attach the wire was with sellotape.

Run double sided tape round the outside of the backing card and peel back just a little until you are sure that you have the circles identical.

Finish off by using the coffee time decoupage from the 'no scissors required' set.
