Punch Paper Table Runner


Sorry about all the party posts back to back! I'm almost done sharing them & hope to have more things to share soon. But in the meantime, here is another.


Have you joined Pinterest yet? It's SO addictive! One day when I was browsing, I saw this picture, and thought I could so something similar for Layla's art party.


And this was simple since I had everything I needed: cardstock scraps, glue & a punch.


I wasn't sure how many I would need, so I just started punching. I somewhat layed them out so I could get an idea of how it would look & how long it might be.



Then I just started gluing. I just did it randomly, whatever looked good.



It was hard to get a picture of the whole thing!


And here it is in use. You can see it above and a little closer below.



It was super simple and a great way to use up some of those scraps I've been hoarding saving.

Oh and I didn't make it past the first round of American Crafter. But maybe it's for the better since I re-started college this past Monday. I was nervous for some reason, but it didn't seem so bad. I'm taking Ethics, and I have it twice a week from 6-9:50. But thankfully he said we will never stay that late! Thanks to those who voted for me.

What have you been up to? Seems like comments have dropped lately.
