A new font from old shapes

February 2, 2009 at 6:52 am 38 comments

As promised, allow me to introduce PunchDings, a dingbat font I created on YourFonts.com by gluing shapes from my (much bigger than I realized) collection of craft punches onto the font template.


Pretty cool, if I do say so myself. Download the TrueType font here. If you’d like to share this font, please help me publicize my blog by sharing a link to this page instead of just the font file. The sharing button in the right hand column makes that easy. Thanks!

    What a great way to keep your favorite shapes in one place. Easy to find to boot. Might be interesting to use for journaling blocks. When you get a moment, drop me a line.

    Thanks you for this, you are so clever. It’ll save me on punches plus I find that I don’t use the ones I have as they don’t cut card stock. Thanks

    I have a question about your video list. I know you said that furl had been bought out and you were find a new home for the videos. A frustrated new Cricut owner had asked for videos to learn how to use the cricut. I gave her Robyn’s (ThePinkStamper) blog address, and the one I had for Cricutpedia. Apparently the old address is no longer usable. Do you have a new site yet?


  • 18. Zellko  |  April 9, 2009 at 4:49 pm

    What timing! I just put my craft room together today (we are new empty-nesters) and looked at that box of punches, thinking now that I have SCAL I shouldn’t have to drag those to crops and
    VIOLA! Here you’ve alread done the work for me! Thanks bunches!

    […] October 5, 2009 I read this on the Cricut blog and it’s a great font.  Thought I’d share.  Overall, a great way to enhance the punches for personal use.  I have a few I’d like to use more, but don’t because of the lack of variety of size. The fancy new punches are all rights-restricted but the early old-school punches carried no copyright restrictions. I made a font of some of those to make them easier to use in SCAL or for printing out at other sizes. You can download it for free here https://cleversomeday.wordpress.com/2009/02/02/a-new-font-from-old-shapes/ […]

    Thank you! Will love adding these to my shapes folder!
