New ways to use your punches

As promised, here's how to make the orange "medallion" punched shape:

I punched out one scalloped circle (using SU's scallop punch), and then used a small square of removable adhesive to stick it on a piece of scrap paper:

Then I put it back in the scallop circle punch, but rotated it slightly:
When I punched that out and took the cardstock off of the scrap, I got this:

This technique also works with the five petal punch:
Here's the before and after for each:

This technique will work with most symmetrical shape punches (although circles would turn into, well circles), and may do some funky things with non-symmetrical ones. If you try any other punches, please post a comment with your results :)
