When a punch becomes a holder.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Sometimes you need a third hand. Use a punch upside down to help with it.

When the Snow Globe Shaker Dome is set upside down in the 2 1/2″ circle punch you can put glitter and sequins to fill the shaker without spilling. Then you pull the adhesive backing off and stick to the card base.

Happy Crafting!

Using a bone folder to straighten things out.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Today we are using the bone folder to straighten things out instead of create greater creases. The bone folder can get the kinks out of ribbon or twine easily for you.

Simply hold the ribbon or twine against the edge of the bone folder much like you would a pair of scissors when curling a curling ribbon for a package.

Using leaves for a pinecone.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Did you know that the Leaf Punch will also punch out a pinecone? In the new stamp set in the Holiday Catalog called Perfectly Plaid the pinecone fits just perfectly in the leaf.

Remember to look at your products sideways, upside down, and backwards. You never know what you may find.

Where a block becomes a straight edge.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Today’s post I give credit to Lisa Hull. Thank you Lisa for showing me a new way to do things with what is already on the table.

Today I am using a clear block to rip the tear tape on a small tab. If you don’t have enough room to get your fingers in there then use a clear block to pull against much like a straight edge.

Scoring is not always for folding.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Today we are using the scoring tool to not create a fold. Instead the embossed image will be for texture or emphasis. So grab your trimmer, stylus and a ruler, or your score board and start scoring with me.

Paper as a ribbon.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Today I want to talk to you about using paper as a ribbon.

Sometimes a fabric ribbon does not seem to match. It’s dyed to be the same color but with the texture it just doesn’t seem to go. This is when you rely on your paper instead. Take a narrow strip of paper and glue down much like a ribbon. It will match!

This card will be created at Cheryl’s Card Class on the 14th. Here’s the invitation.

Let me know if you would like to come!

Using a bone folder for more than folding.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Today I am talking about the bone folder. This is a great tool to have to crease folds, evenly spread ink, or even curl ribbon or paper. But, would you guess, that it could be used for your hair?

Now I would not have guessed for it to be put in your hair but here it is.

Obviously this is a screenshot of someone else since my hair is super short, but you get the idea.

Are you always behind?

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Instead of a product today I want to talk about time. Are you always seeming to run behind? Did you not get your Christmas cards out last year? Are you late on birthdays? Maybe you need a jump start.

Did you know that as a demonstrator you get to pre-order out of the catalog? Did you know that you could be looking as of noon yesterday at the Holiday Catalog and planning your Christmas cards? Yes, already!

Did you know that you get 20% off when ordering (and 25% after you reach the first level)?

Did you know that this month you get a bonus just for signing up and a discount next month?

Did you know that there is no negative impact to your credit?

Did you know that if you drop nothing happens except that you don’t get to see things first?

So what do you have to do? No classes, trainings, or social media is required. All that is required is that you buy or sell $300 per quarter (or $100 per month). So take a look at your wish list and let me know if this is right for you.

Sometimes the wacky in Wednesday is us! 🙂

When you are out of envelopes.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Have you ever run out of envelopes? Then make an envelope card. This is where you take a piece of Designer Series Paper and create an envelope around your card.

Where circles become Christmas.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Today we are using circles to create a Christmas card. Yes, Christmas. Did you know that circles, squares, ovals, and basic shapes can build to create just about anything?

Watch tonight on Facebook Live at 7 pm to find out what creation these circles become. Here is the link to the page, https://www.facebook.com/StampingWithJoni/.

Happy Crafting!
