Creating a Punched border by Gerry!

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! After looking at it and holding it for an hour I came up with the idea to punch holes :-) and this is how the idea came up to my mind... to make a border.
I created especially for Ideas For Scrapbookers a layout and a card showing my punched border. In three steps I`ll show you how easy, funny and creative this is!





Step 1 : Take your eyelet tool ( I use a Fiskars eyelet tool - it exist in a set of three different sizes) and just punch holes in the shape you want...circles, scallops, etc.




Step 2 : Cut along the edges of the wholes with a hobby knife or a pair of scissors.





Step 3 : Now your punched border is ready ....you can give some personal addition to it like distressing, coloring, adding some glitter or just use your imagination and give your personal touch to it!






I hope you enjoyed this funny, easy, fast and cheap :-) way to create your own border!
