  • Fiskars Twist and Flip 2 in 1 punch
  • Fiskars Craft Mat
  • Fiskars Personal Trimmer
  • Fisakrs Eylet Setter 1/8
  • Fiskars Scallop heart punch (M)
  • Pen to journal and some adhesive


Hidden tabs:

  1. Step One:
    To make the hidden journaling tabs you need to cut 5 pieces from the At the Gate cardstock that are 2” x 3 ½ “ with your trimmer.
  1. Step two:
    Next take your “twist and flip” punch and choose which setting you wish to use either the ¼” or ½”
  1. Step three:
    to change the setting –lift the lever as shown in the pic and turn either way…there is an arrow to help you turn.
  1. Step four:
    Next line your cardstock up under the punch where there is a slot…make sure this is firmly in the corner before you punch

  2. Step five:
    I find it easier to turn the punch upside down. … flip it over……and then you can see how much easier it is to line of your cardstock.

  3. Step six:
    Punch by squeezing your thumb and fingers together in the one quick movement.

  4. Step seven:
    Next sand around the edges of these 5 hidden journaling tabs with some fine sandpaper so that you can see the white core show through…..just gives them a nice defined edge!

  5. Step eight:
    To empty the little cut off pieces from the punch….just twist the lever half way between setting and shake a little…they just drop out easily.

  6. Step nine:
    Journal onto the tabs……in my case I have had my son do his own journaling!

Rounding Photos:

  1. Step One:
    Using the twist and flip punch in the same way as above…
  1. Step two:
    Turn your photos upside down to punch- makes sure you get a nice finish.
  1. Step three:
    Punch 2 corners of your photos…I have only punched 2 on the same side of each pic and then punched three holes on opposite sides with my Fiskars hole punch.
  1. Step four:
    I have also punched out a heart from the Globetrotter cardstock using a Fiskars scalloped squeeze punch (M)

Assembling your LAYOUT:

  1. Step One:
    Adhere your Ready to Board cardstock onto a brown cardstock and then place pics where you wish and slide the tabs you made under the pics as shown in layout pics…
  1. Step two:
    I have then used embellishments form the Li’l Davis “Away We Go” travel range to create my “Travel the World” title….as well as embellishing with some of the Epoxy Stickers and rub-ons.


  • Play around with the twist and flip on scrap first before you start using it on your pics.
  • Flip the punch upside down for easier lining up of paper/cardstock.
  • Make sure your cardstock/paper is in the corner before you punc.
  • Further ideas for using: cards, tags, rounding edges on pattern paper to add to layouts, rounding edges on concertina Mini Albums, tabs, making tabs for your filing system!
