Tuesday Tip: How to Punch on Small Pieces of Paper

I don’t know about you, but I like to make the most of my precious Stampin’ Up! cardstock and designer papers. That means I save little scraps and wait to find a calling for them. Usually I find a use for them when I need to punch something out. Today I’m wanting to punch out a skeleton using our super cute new Cookie Cutter Builder Punch, but I have a problem. To get the skeleton in the right spot to punch, the paper isn’t big enough to hold onto it. What should I do??? If you have ever wondered how to punch on small pieces of paper, here’s a simple solution for you.
