How to Really Measure Up! Recipe Swap Part 3

This is the tutorial for the measuring spoons on this recipe card...

Punch 1 inch, TWO 3/4 inch, TWO 1/2 inch holes - throw the 1/2 inch holes away, throw out one of the 3/4 inch circles - keep one 3/4 inch and the 1 inch circles.

Go back and punch around the HOLES as follows:

1 3/8 around the 1 inch hole

1 1/4 around the 3/4 inch hole

1 inch around the 3/4 inch hole

1 inch around the 1/2 inch hole

3/4 around the 1/2 inch hole

Additionally punch
1 1/4 circle

1 3/8 circle
and FOUR word windows

So this is what you have ...

Sponge GOING GRAY on the solid circles (not the rings) in the middle but I only covered about 3/4 of the circle - NOT full coverage

Adhere the rings on the sponged circles

Add a highlight in the spoon with a white gel pen on the side that didn't get sponged.

Stack your word windows on top of each other and use your crop-a-dile to punch a hole near one end (punch all four at once) - I used the larger of the two hole punch options.

Adhere the spoon handles onto the spoons.

Cut a slit in the "ring" and feed through the holes in the spoon handles.

They really are hanging on the ring

Ta Dah!  You just manufactured measuring spoons!
