Creating Embellishments with Punches

Hi everyone! Its Wendy and I'm sharing a challenge to hopefully get you scrapping and crafting this week. My challenge for you is to create an embellishment with your punch. I used the waste part of the punch to create brads (tutorial below). You don't have to create brads…anything goes! You could punch hearts or circles and gather them together to create flowers. Or cover a chipboard piece with lots of punches. Or how about creating a miniture shaker box embellishement using your punch scraps! 

So the challenge is to create an embellishment with your punches and use it on a layout, card or 3D project = 1 ballot
OR using a KREAXIONS PUNCH = 2nd ballot 

You will have a whole month .. all of April to post a blog inlinkz to this
(and any other DT Challenge for the month of April). 
The prize will be a Kreaxions Circle Cutter or Punch.

It is super simple to create your own brads with punches. First you'll need to gather up your supplies. You're going to need brads, embossing powder, Versamark, Kreaxion punches (Punch #905) and Glossy Accents.
