Petal Card Extra Large Double Punch Ideas and Product Review

Stampin' Up! introduced a brand new paper punch this month that is called Petal Card Extra-Large Double punch. It is item # 119273 for $17.95. This punch needs to be used in the upright position. It does not have a view area on the bottom. Place it flat on the table with card stock in, then press once to cut and then a bit hard to emboss the lines for folds. This punch cuts and embosses .. isn't that GREAT!!!

This punch has caused a great deal of discussion among demonstrators and customers alike. It makes a cute little envelope type card that would hold a 1 inch design inside but what else can we do with it.

I work with it quite a bit yesterday and came up with some ideas. It helped that I also had the Big Shot BigZ Petal Card Die (now retired) and had done a tutorial for that earlier on my blog. Here's the link to that tutorial ... CLICK HERE I realized that whatever was done with the larger version should be able to be done with this version too.


This is a close up of the paper punch.


Tiny box made by gluing 2 of the cut-outs together.

Side view of the tiny box. It hold 1 creme saver.
Here's the miniature version of a 1 inch square box. Decorated with 1 inch designs. Next time will use more adhesive on the designs to have them lay flat. This box will hold 2 lifesavers that are individually wrapped.


Antoher view of the 1 inch box I made and decorated all 4 sides.

This is the tiny petal card you can make. Put in a 1 inch design or greeting in the base when it is opened up.

If you fold two sides, it make a cute heart with an opening. Opening is big enough to hold a quarter.

I used a roll of scotch tape for a size comparison to give you a visual on this.

Another visual, this time with a quarter on the left bottom of the photo.

Looking forward to see what others comes up with. I think it is cute and versatile. I think the boxes and tiny boxes would be hung from a table tree and decorated for different holidays and events.

I also heard discussion of taking the envelope and attaching it to the back of the tooth fairy stamped image (Tooth Fairy, wood mount only, item #119216 $7.95) and putting the child's lost tooth in it. Sounded like a great idea, don't you agree!

Have a great weekend. Remember you can order 24/7 from my Stampin' Up! website by clicking HERE and then click on Shop Now.

I didn't get this punch, because I had no idea that you could do anything with it. I didn't see the pointe of getting it, but now I see!!! Thanks for the inspiration. I might have to buy it now.
