Introduction

Surprise someone special with a beautiful card and be the hit of the party with these fun treat bags created by Michaels using our All-Over Heart and Dots punch.

Tips: Prior to using the punch, it may be helpful to draw some guidelines on the back of the card stock for more precise alignment. You can also turn the punch upside down and slide the card stock over to make sure you do not overlap the punched design. When using the punch, align the flat corners of the punch so that the magnets snap together properly.
