Punch a Crow, Stamp a Crow, Counting Crows ... a 15 Minute Project

Pin It

Happy Toasted Marshmallow Day! And anyone who says, "anything is possible," hasn't tried to strike a match on a marshmallow ... toasted or otherwise.


Today's 15 Minute Project was created in a flash using my favorite craft tool: punches! Or, in this case, punch!

I stamped my image, available HERE, on DCWV card stock, and double matted it.

Then, I punched out six birds with my bird punch, which also punches out those cute l'il star/flower shapes, and adhered everything down on my card base.

Easy-peasy and ready to serve in just 15 Minutes!

Cute story to share with you: The little boy next door found a dead bird in his yard and asked me if I'd attend the "funeral." Of course, I agreed.

As we solemnly stood by, Adam officiated. As he laid the bird's tiny "casket" into the hole, he prayed, "Glory be unto the Faaaather .... and unto the Sonnn .... and into the hole he gooooes."

Now go toast a marshmallow or two!

Deb - you crack me up! Like you, I like to celebrate those not-so-popular (not-so-well-known) "holidays"... however i did not know today was Toasted Marshmallow Day! Makes me want to go to the beach and have a bonfire! Thanks for the laughs... "into the hole he goes"... ha!

Love the combination. The bird looks like it is balancing itself on one foot (to me).
A two in one punch. How cool. You were supposed to put those punched flowers under their bottom. Hehehehe.

That card is a little eerie. That many crows in one place can't be a good thing.
