Favorite Technique: Layered Punches

I’m SO excited to show my favorite technique to you! One of my absolute favorite things to do these days is to layer punched papers. There is just something so satisfying about putting layer after layer together and then fluffing up the edges. You can see a peek of each paper and it kinda rocks my world. Here’s a look at what I’m talking about…

I especially dig how the pieces using this technique look from the side. AND you can do this with any shape or style of punch. Hey – it might be cool to even do it with letters for a title. Hmmm. See! Using your favorite technique can even inspire new ideas!
