I recently bought a new border punch which set me off on a punching frenzy. Border punches are a great way of adding texture and definition to pages without adding any bulk.
I have used the Kaisercraft These Days collection for this layout. As you can see I used the punches in a few ways that add a delicate lacey feel.
For this edge I punched a couple of strips of paper and then lightly spritzed it with water. This allows you to crumple the paper together to form a frilly edge. When the paper dries, it sets in place and becomes firm again.
Of course the punch around the page allows us to edge our background papers. I added little dots of Perfect Pearls as an accent all the way around.
You’ll frequently see small envelopes on my layouts – I love envelopes as a way to hide my journalling. If ever I come across a small envelope, I pull it apart and draw around it to make myself a template. I have quite a little collection going now!
Lastly, I edged my circles with a punched border just like the ruffled border only this time snipping the inside edge to allow it to bend around the circle.
Thanks for popping in.
