There are many types of hand punches out there and one of the latest is the edge and corner sets from E.K. Success/Martha Stewart. The corner punches can be used by themselves to create interesting small medallion. Start with a stack of 2" x 2", 2 1/4' x 2 1/4' or 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" squares pieces of solid colored paper and then punch away. Once you've done punching start stacking them into different combinations. I turned mine into "fake" medals by adding some paper trim, bows and bling.
