As every addicted scrapper I have a lot of hobby stuff at home...paper, paint, tools, machines, etc. I feel guilty but I have to admit that some of these have never been used or hardly used! For example, my eyelet tool...it`s a great tool but I simply don`t use it...and that`s a pity, of course! After looking at it and holding it for some time I came up with the idea to punch holes :-) and this is how the idea came up to my mind...to make a punched border.
Recently I was invited by Pam Callaghan to be a Featured Artist and I created especially for her inspiring and useful Ideas for Scrapbookers blog, a layout and a card showing my punched border. In three steps I`ll show you how easy, funny and creative this is!
Step1: Take your eyelet tool ( I use a Fiskars eyelet tool - it exists in a set of three different sizes) and I simply punch holes in the shape you want...circles, scallops, reactangles, etc
Step 3: Now your punched border is ready...you can give some personal addition to it like distressing, coloring or simply use your imagination and give your personal touch to it!
I hope you enjoyed this funny, easy, fast and cheap :-) way to created your own border!
And here are some close-ups I took of the layout and the card!
Have a great weekend!
