DIY Inspiration: 8 Paper Punch Projects

A note to newer readers (runners): les plus beauxx started as a craft blog. I lost my crafty way when my full time job became more creative and I didn't need an artsy outlet. While I'm not quite ready to get back to it, I've been hoarding a lot of DIY links and future projects. Throughout 2016 I intend to post a few of these inspirational round-ups. Let's get started.

Today, I give you easy crafts using hole punches. Some of the following are step-by-step tutorials, but a few are links to completed projects that can serve as DIY inspiration.

My own examples
I wish I had better photos, but I've made several circle punch garlands for my wedding and parties. I used a large circle punch for the main circle and added two small holes on opposite sides of the circle. I then used fishing line to string my circles and create the garland. For my wedding strands I added a bead at the end to weigh them down. Here's a great tutorial from Splendry.

I highly recommend paper punch projects. Not only are they foolproof, but they are mildly therapeutic and can dress up any space or party.
