(Punch one piece, line it up with piece 2, punch, line up with piece 3, Punch) Glue these together making sure the holes line up. This makes your template. you could also punch several holes in a row if you wanted too.

When you come across scraps that you plan to toss. Punch them with the hole punch. Place your template over a mouse pad and put the punch out inside the hole of your template. Use a stylus or the back of a pen and move it in a circular motion in the hole. This creates the domed effect.

These look really pretty sprayed with pearly sprays.

Cheap and beautiful.

I have participated in some card candy swaps here on SCS. They are usually layers of punched shapes embellished with buttons, glitter, etc. I have received some very pretty ones.
