I was inspired by this tutorial after seeing this Bokeh Kit. I didn’t create the same effect, just reimplemented the concept to create an overlay. I thought it would be fun! At first I had a couple of minor issues, but I resolved them quickly. I think this is a fun way to play around and inspire yourself with the results.
My punches didn’t quite reach the middle of my paper. So I left the first one as is and with the second (the flower) I centered it to my lens. So results may vary with punch position.
Make sure the tape isn’t on the base of the lens, when you focus it’ll twist off.
Play around with different types of paper, as well as colors and punch styles.
You might also try doing multiple punches all over for a funky picture/design!
