Default how have you used the convex and concave punches?

I can't figure out what to do w/ my convex and concave punches. Does anyone have suggestions ... or even better ... pics?

Hi: I like to punch them out in colors that go together. I do a bunch and keep them in a small stamp box until I need them. Then I layer them and stamp using the little word stamps from the all year cheer sets. Or you can punch through sheet adhesive and use them as a border for micro beads or better yet use a color and adhesive and clear micro beads or use them as a funky window and put a small image underneath. I hope that makes sence. I just inspired myself.

I've used them to hold stuff down on my desk.

I *seriously* need to go to the other side of this counter and use what I have purchased!

Default punches

I use the concave punch with the small alphabet sets I own. Much like using the 1/2 circle with alphadots.

I have used the convex square with the alphadots. It has a very retro look to it. I also like the look of the two punches together like in this card by Kendra:

I use mine mostly for either charms (secured with brads or eyelets over the layered pieces) on either the inside or outside of a card. The seem best suited, in my opinion, as an accent piece either with an alphabet or small phrase (or again charms!). HTH

I stamp letters and then punch them out for titles in scrapbooking.

Too funny - I was going to post the link to the card I made using the punches, but Kathleen beat me to it. I'm shocked that out of all the cards on this site, you remembered this one. LOL. Kendra

Kendra, I have this card saved in my favorites. I think what you did with the two punches combined is awesome!

Have a couple in my gallery.

I got my convex punch a couple of weeks ago. Generally, just use it as you would a square punch...with a kick!

It's also about the right side to use with Mini Mates...
