Yesterday I showed you how the border/corner punches work, today I want to show a layout I just made. Before I get to my work this morning, I took a few minutes to put this layout together. Fiskars new border punches + Making Memories Vintage findings were my goodies of choice. Sometimes, even in creative work, just letting yourself do something “just because” is the best way to keep inspiration flowing.
If I were to buy just one of the 4 new designs of Fiskars border punches – it’d be this one. Cutting the bits off to create a die-cut paper look was easy. I used a craft knife- and I bet that’s the quickest & easiest way. This punch is called punch lace & lattice.
I’ve been playing a lot with ruffles & pleats in paper and ribbon. I’m liking how this would have looked ruffled had I sewn down the middle, but since I sewed the edges it looks more folded. Hmmm, as Becca would say, “I like it.”
I like photo corners made from this punch too.
Now that I’ve had my fifteen minutes of play, I’m heading back into work…
