Christmas Countdown! #4 - Punch Art Paper Crafts

Punch Art is just so much fun and a GREAT way to spend time with the kids creating some special holiday artwork..... here's a few of my favorites I found. You can use them on Christmas cards for those special people in your life or even frame them all together inside a collage shadow box....

I know many of you are experiencing some
very cold weather and this one's for you!...

Tip: to add some textrue to Santa's beard use the cardstock from which you punch the scallop circle for the beard as a template to sponge ink "layers" onto the beard.
And here's a little bonus... how to make a simple little paper bow.. you could bundle all four of your punch art cards and wrap them up with a bow on top:
