Bat punch fun
A friend gave me a gift of some autumn-themed paper punches last year. There's a cat, two different leaf shapes, and a bat (my favorite, of course). I like to use them on envelope flaps and color underneath for effect. I photographed this process for you...
...and Soda helped oversee the procedure. (The punch, with the envelope, is at her feet.)
First, I colored underneath the punch area with a silver gel pen.
Then I closed the flap without sealing it just to make sure I had the whole area covered.
Here's a photo of the punch itself on top of the envelope, before sealing - with Soda's paws in the upper right-hand corner. (See how helpful she is??)
Then, voila! A silvery bat window. (Alas, it's not quite centered, but hey, that adds to the charm, right?)
Soda thinks so.
