How to make a Butterfly into a BAT!

Need a Bat for your Halloween card? Grab the new Elegant Butterfly Punch! Punch a butterfly from black cardstock. Cut off the lower edge of the butterfly as shown in the photo. On the back, mark the CENTER of the butterfly with the White Gel Pen as a guide. Punch the lower edge of EACH butterfly wing two times with the 1/2" circle punch. Viola! It's a BAT!

Then create your card! I used JACK OF ALL TRADES for my creation! I love using my Stampin' Up! Punches  to create out-of-the-box images! Don't you??
