I love this fun splat shaped punch by EK Success.  I can totally see using it as a water splash or an accent shape (in place of circles, squares, hexagons etc.) on my crafting projects.

As I am bit of tool geek, I love to look for re-purposing opportunities and this splat would make an awesome flower.

Just punch out 2 splats, ink the edges and layer them together to form a base.  To create the flower center, punch out one splat, fold and cut off the pointy tip, glue this onto the flower base and repeat this process 2 more times to complete the flower bloom.

There you have it! From a splat to a flower bloom, this is one great punch! Have a crafty day!
