Step 2

First, tear your choice of paint card apart then stick it to your puncher as seen below. As you can see, I chose this lovely pink color because who doesn't love pink anyway?

Just a tip, make sure that your card covers exactly where you want the punch to go so that you'll get that perfect design that you want.
