Who are the Calendar Girls? We are a group of bloggers who want to have a place where friendships blossom, creativity abounds, and encouragement prevails! In keeping with that dream, this blog group has been created so we will have a place to interact and enjoy being fellow bloggers.  Paola is the hostess this month and she posted the following challenge:

For the month of August, I would like to challenge everyone to embrace the PUNCH ART tecnique...yup, dust off your punches Ladies!
PLease feel free to use a stamped sentiment of your choice , but the main focus is being creative, using punches .

I went with a familiar punch art project I did a few years ago.  I love this birthday card, shaped as a present, with all of the loops of "ribbon" on the top!

What a cute little punch art box, gift! This is so creative, way to think outside the box (hee hee, get it?! LOL!) This is so sweet and a lovely take on the challenge - kudos!
