Paper crafts are best when they are easy to assemble, and especially when they don’t require any adhesives. Include a fancy ribbon, and no one can resist the fun of putting all the pieces together.

This was the first time our team had created a “punch-out” piece, versus a typical die-cut or perforation. We worked with the printer to refine the die-cut shapes and decide where to place the small tabs that hold the shapes in the front of the card before they are punched out. It was important that the pieces be easy to remove, but that they didn’t fall out of place while in the mail. We also had to find the right thickness of paper since the ornament pieces hold themselves together without the use of adhesives.
