A quintessential paper crafting supply- we all have a Border Punch or two in our stash! Today I’m sharing a few ideas, some easy some unique that will make you want to pull out those border punches and start crafting!
fiskars border punch system
The old-style border punches (remember Threading water?) are also available as Fiskars AdvantEdge Punch system with cartridges.
I love using the AdvantEdge Punch system for this for a few good reasons – One, it speeds up the process by magnetically holding the paper in place as you move the punch along with the paper. Two, the cartridge moves along smoothly punching the pattern continuously, eliminating the need for you to manually align the paper each time
Here I created a bunch of flowers using the Border punch designs and love the way this Paper Flower Garland turned out!
Trim the border off of the paper using a pair of scissors and ruffle it onto a punched circle. For really thick patterned paper, it helps to dampen your fingers while forming the circle from the border. Place the ruffled circle onto the punched circle, affix another smaller ruffle on top and staple everything into place.
border punches for card making
An easy way to jazz up a simple card is to use a border punch just on the front of the card to add a unique fancy design
Here is a clean and simple card with a hint of scallop and little machine stitching here.
