Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and we are thankful for Amy’s creativity and this elegant table setting she’s sharing with us today!
Wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Tonic Studios – we are so thankful for your support!
These punches seem to add a bit of elegance to everything, but this was one project that didn’t take nearly as long as it looks. With the holidays approaching time is valuable – come take a peek at what you can do in no time flat!
Tonic Punches: Multi Detail Butterfly, Mini Punch Leaf 1, Simplicity Pattern Daisy Strip, and Simplicity Pattern Dotty Border.
Other Supplies: 3 Colors of coordinating cardstock, 2 patterned papers (Teresa Collins Giving Thanks Line), adhesive, trimmer.
I just started punching out a bunch of borders and strips and layered them together. These two Simplicity punches work beautifully together! To get the border on both edges, I just cut my strip and then punched the other side – it gives it a very pretty and finished look to the projects. The finished menu is 5.5″ x 7.5″ and I went down in quarter increments for the inner layers. The strip width will be determined on the amount of space on your menu. I chose to use the butterfly – I love the elegant look of the butterfly, but wanted to give it some fall flair by layering the mini leaf punch on it.  These projects only took me about an hour to do – and what a fun addition to our Thanksgiving table – time well invested!

Thanks for stopping by this week to take a peek at the October Afternoon feature – it’s sure been fun creating with Woodland Park!

Here are a couple more cards as we finish up this week’s feature:

“BEAUTIFUL” — Featuring the Tonic Studios MultiDetail Butterfly Punch

For this card, I angled the butterfly punch a bit before punching the butterfly from the front cream cardstock piece.  Rather than using the detailed butterflies I punched out, I used the negative images left in the cream cardstock and matted over this simple pattern.

October Afternoon – Woodland Park Collection – “huckleberry hill” paper, printed chip shapes, and flower sack.

Other – cream cardstock, mini blue adhesive pearls




“HUGS” — Featuring the Tonic Studios Border System, Sewing Holes Punch, & Doily Edger Punch

Tip – for the pattern strips, I adhered them to a scrap of cardstock along the top edge — then they stayed in place as I punched the scalloped edge.  

This sewing holes punch is one of the first Tonic punches I used and it’s still one I reach for ALL THE TIME!

Happy Monday!  Here is a simple little card from Jackie featuring a couple of the ever popular Tonic butterfly punches!

 Multi Detail Butterfly Punch
 Butterfly Accent Border Punch
 Border System

To get the butterflies in the border closer together, Jackie started punching in the center of the paper and instead of lining up the edge of the design with the guides on the border system, she lined up the center of the middle butterfly with the edge of the punch itself.
