Since I started working on my Exposing Garlic project, I’ve accumulated a pile of garlic paper (aka outer peel). One day I wanted very much to know if this paper can withstand getting punched into shape. It turns out that it can and the results were quite impressive.
So what can you do with the punch-outs? You can certainly glue them to embellish paper crafts or maybe as confetti? Just a thought, though no one will know that they came from garlic.
This is certainly fresh insight for me. Cool!
I’m so amazed and I must give it a try!!

Very interesting indeed but what does one do with it I wonder… :)
The possibilities are endless…! ;o) Happy Day, Clara ((HUGS))
this is so extraordinary. You really think out of the box.

Such a cool idea! THanks for sharing!
I would love to put a link to your blog on my shop. Let me know if that’s OK. I have this exact paper puncher and I think what you have done with it is amazing ! Good job =)

Nice! I guess you can also do this with Onion skins? :)
