A craft hole punch is a hole punch that is used for decorative purposes when making different types of crafts. These punches punch through paper, leather, and metal.
These punches can be bought at craft stores, stores that sell scrapbook supplies, and some discount stores. Some craft punches are available for purchase online. They can be purchased individually or in sets that come with several different shapes. Every type of craft punch is not available in every store. Finding exactly the right punch may take some research.
Craft punches are available in a variety of shapes. Basic shapes include rectangles and squares. Some of the fancier shapes are hearts, stars, teardrops, and butterflies.
Punches are available in shapes that can be used for different holidays and celebrations. These punches can be used to make paper confetti in different shapes for celebrating different occasions such as birthdays or graduations. Some places sell punches that punch letters and numbers.
The punches can also be used to make handmade greeting cards more elaborate. A piece of card stock with different shapes punched in it can be layered on top of another piece of card stock to make a greeting card fancier.
Punches that make different shapes can be used to embellish pages in scrapbooks. Some scrapbook kits come with punches. Sets of scrapbook tools sometimes have punches with different shapes.
