Video: How to Make Holly Leaves

How to make Holly Leaves with a Circle Punch

Have you ever wanted a custom sized holly leaf for a project, but didn’t have a punch or die for it?  Today I’m going to show you how to make your own custom sized holly leaf.

One of our readers, Eloise asked me yesterday to share the dimensions for the leaves on this project, so I took it another step today and made a Creative Tip video Tutorial for you all!  Enjoy.
