heart punch

Happy February! Happy Monday!
This time of year my heart (punch) gets a work out. It's a simple tool that gets a lot of of mileage because it  transforms paper into love effortlessly. It's fabulous for children's artwork and especially helpful for the many Valentine's they often give to their friends and classmates. Remember these? So easy. 

But what's making me really happy are these mini heart maps (see my big ones here from last year) and my new LOVE BIRDS! I punched out an old road map with special places and color copied a bird guide.
Aren't they wonderful? Just right for cards and collaging! Maybe I need to make a lovebird bunting of all of those Buntings (birds)! If you don't have a heart punch in your tool box, I highly recommend taking a trip to your closest craft store. And if you do have one? What hearts have you been punching?

  1. How sweet! I love these mini-birds :)

  2. Great idea and a perfect activity, I think for me plus my 3 and 4 year old. Quick, predictable results and the paper punch will be fun for them to press. I have a few Nikki McClure calendars left over that I couldn't part with. I think that will be just the thing. Thanks for the inspiration:)

  3. Very nice Maya ... you are right, perfect for collages :)

  4. I love your blog

  5. I used seed catalogs and made a collage of hearts for V. Day several years ago. I still love it.
