I love stenciling with freezer paper, but really don't have the time to spend carving out intricate designs. A couple of my friends have recently had bubbies and I was trying to think of personalised - and quick - presents for them. And then I remembered my little paper craft punches which are now part of my daughter's craft box.

I just punched out a couple of each animal onto strips of freezer paper and it was sooooo quick! It would be better if you had larger ones because the definition isn't great on some of the small bits, but I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out.

I notice a couple of others have used this technique (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=119881.0, https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=111092.0) so I know its nothing new - but it was certainly a revelation to me!
