Exposing garlic: punch me pretty

[Chapter: DIY + tutorials]

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.
