Tarheel Stamper - Zoo Animals Punch Instructions

“Zoo” Animal Crackers Box Punched Animals

I have included a photo with tips below of the pieces needed for the animals on this box posted here. I made a “sticky” stick to help me pick up and place the small pieces.  LOL  I used a lollipop stick from a craft or big box store.  I put a dab of Tombow Multi-Purpose glue (see end of post for more info on this glue) on the flat end and let dry.  While it was drying, I left it in an upright position so the glue would not run off.  After drying, I dabbed my finger on top of the dried glue several times to cut down on the stickiness.  Otherwise it tore my paper when I tried to pick up the stick from placing the piece down.  Clear as mud right?  LOL

I am including  links below to a pdf if you want to print the instructions.  Instruction is used loosely because I did not label every punched piece.  I just could not spend that much time to type all that information.  I think you can figure out the sizes and the punches which were used on each animal.  I have the supplies used below.  Enjoy and if you have a question click on contact me.  I will try to help.

I have a video on punch tips here which shows how to punch the elephant trunk and tiger stripes along with how to punch longer tags.  Also I show how to get a ball on each end of the jewelry tag punch.  I will post a card soon using that method for a sentiment.
