Good Morning Saturday!

The weekend is finally here and like any usual day in the Lala world we’re busy!  Today I have a Girl Scout cookie booth sale with my Junior troop at Big Lots which is sure to be an adventure.  I know the girls will have so much fun, but I’d rather be downstairs at my craft table making some goodies.  Why?  Well last night I went to a fun Stampin Up party and got my Eyelet border punch that I’ve been dying for!  If you haven’t seen border punches before here’s a picture:

Using border punches adds great detail to your projects, but sometimes they’re tough to figure out.  So here’s a brief tutorial.  First you put the middle of your paper in to the punch and punch.  Then you line up the image on your paper to the image on the sides of the punch. So the image underneath is completely covered by your paper and punch.  Be sure you don’t push your punched paper on the side up too high for the unpunched sides because that will cause the punched image to not line up with what you’ve already punched. 

Border punches add a great edge to cards or detailed to your scrapbook layouts. Border punches come in lots of brands and range from $7 -15 in price depending on the detail of the punch and your brand.  Pick one up and start practicing!  Maybe this afternoon I can post a paper rosette with this punch. But first off to the booth sale and a quick spin around Big Lots to grab some Scotch glue and maybe some embellishments!!

Leave a comment – I’d love to hear what your favorite border punch is!  Have a Magical Day!!
