So I saw the butterfly idea http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=284723.0 here, and thought wow I could make one of these for my grandpa who was in the Navy.

He always tells me the stories about the "H bomb" going off....he was on the ships around it when they first tested it.

Well this past Friday he suffered a heart attack and I finally got my butt in gear and got it finished.









I can't wait to give it to him  Cheesy

Sad That's too bad. Hopefully he gets better.

My question is, how did you make the anchors. Did you have a paper punch? If so where did you get it and/or what company makes it? I've been looking for an anchor paper punch for a while and I've only found one that doesnt even really look like an anchor...

Thanks!

I found it at Michaels it was in the Martha Stewart Collection I believe.
