SheetLoads' sister site, ShortCuts, is sponsoring this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge. Challenge #63 is to create a card with punches or die cuts. Since I don't currently own any die cut machine, I decided to create my own die cuts using the many punches I do own.
This soon-to-be-released chocolate sentiment by DRS Designs reminded me of the best chocolate I've ever had -- a box of real Belgian chocolate truffles sent to me by a friend stationed there. Here's how I created my own paper version of Belgian truffles:
1) Mini octagons were punched out of a crimped strip of vellum. I then used zig zag scissors to cut the octagons in half, creating a candy paper.
2) The chocolates are circles punched out of cardstock and then trimmed to fit the wrappers. Sprinkles on top were mini dot and slot punch leftovers, but glitter would be a fun touch, too.
