Creative Paper-Punch Techniques

Corner Punched Page

Design by Irma Gabbard

Corner punches are not just for corners! Line up rounded punches along the edge of a sheet of cardstock to create your own custom-color scalloped border. Don't worry about lining up the rounded edges on either side of the scallop. The imperfections are part of the charm.

Editor's Tip: Offset the punched scallops slightly for a less symmetrical ropelike effect.
