New Martha Stewart Punch



Let's just say I had a 50% off Michael's coupon burning a hole in my pocket!  Whenever I get a 50% off coupon, I just HAVE to use it.  It seems wasteful if I don't.  There are things I normally will buy, that I use, if  I have a good coupon - like their Scotch double stick tape, xyron refills, glue sticks, tape runner refills, jumprings, cellophane bags...I could go on and on.  Today there were some 90% off Christmas items that I picked up, then with my coupon I couldn't resist the new Martha Stewart Birds on a Wire edger punch.  I LOVE birds, especially when it comes to crafting.  I have no clue what I will do with this punch, but I already have a substantial nice collection of MS punches, so I could do no wrong in bringing this one home to join the rest of the crew.  How cool is this?? 

My husband does not understand how I like to have craft supplies on hand for just about any occasion "just in case I may need it".  If he only knew the half of what I hoard store...but my NEIGHBORS love it!  Many times, the boys will come over and ask if I have "such and such" for a project they have to do, and so far everytime I have had it!  Yesterday one of the boys came over and asked if I had any styrofoam blocks for a spanish project he had to complete.  I thought about it for a second, and went to the garage and gave him a styrofoam cooler we had, so he could cut it up and make it into blocks.  So see?  You just never know what someone will need...including now a "bird on a wire" punch!

I love this punch too. I might need to use my 50% coupon at Michaels too. I loved your little blurb, I can totally relate. Have a great weekend!

I have no idea what you're gonna do with that bird punch. I tried Googling ideas for you, but found absolutely zilch. Good luck! Post something you make from it. I'd love to see.

Well I had the 50% off also and just as you, I couldn't resist the birds on a wire edge punch. How do you use it? I'd be very interested in seeing a card made with it! It's close to being returned at this point!
