Here’s What You’ll Need
Texture Plates with Paper Punches
I used a combination of large punches typically used for scrapbooking and a small circle and heart punch and created texture plates. Next, I cut the folders in half and used the half with the tab for the plate and the other half of the folder for punching out the shapes. I found that it was easiest to pre-punch a few shapes, cover a small area with glue or glue stick, then arrange the punch-outs on the file folder. If you use liquid glue, you may need to press the folder flat after it’s dry by laying a stack of books on top.
If you’d rather create a more formal-looking pattern, the following design uses a grid to arrange the circle punches.
