Stampin’ Up! Square Punch Trio Video Tutorial

Stampin up holiday card square punch tutorial jolly bits rubber stamps
I have had a number of requests from my blog readers for details on how to create the little trio of square windows for this previously posted card.   So I made another card (above) using the same technique along with a new video tutorial. 

TO CREATE THE TEMPLATE:  Using a ruler, I marked the template below at the penciled measurements. 1/2" from the top.  Then 1/2", 1 7/8", 3 1/8" and 4 1/2" on the width. The overall width of the template is 5".  Using a 1 1/4" Square Punch, I lined up and punched squares as shown.  You can use the template on different widths of card stock as long as you are careful to center it.

STAMPIN' PRETTY TIP:  I stamp through the "windows."  However, if you are concerned about centering it or have an "oops" in the process, an alternative would be to stamp on another piece of matching card stock, crop with the 1 3/8" Square Punch (a size larger than the window, 119877) and slide it underneath your completed card template.  It fits!

  1. Thank you for the great tip. I love the clean look of your cards, and this is a great way to feature small images.

  2. Hi Rachael . . . i really appreciate this suggestion and agree it’s an excellent alternative for those that feel more comfortable “eye balling” it. I have used your method, too, and it works! Hugs, M

  3. Hi Mary,
    I really enjoy your videos, so glad that you do them!

    I thought I’d let you another way I figured out to get punched windows positioned precisely. Instead of making a template like you do, I simply punch the shapes out of scrap card, then adhere them into position them on my card front or the layer I’m working with (I often use dotto for that part too so I can re-use the punched shapes if making more than one card at a time), line the punch up around those punched shapes and punch. It’s easy and it works well, and there’s no risk of messing up a template!

    Would love to know if you try this method and see what you think of it.

    Thanks for all the inspiration!

  4. Thanks for your tips and tricks! I look forward to your newsletter every morning just wondering what great things you will be posting! 🙂

  5. Thanks so much for the tutorial, Mary. I have been dying to try that card. Now I guess I have to buy that punch!
