We’re great fans of punching on our projects here at PaperCraft inspirations HQ, and the gorgeous borders and corner combos from Martha Stewart Crafts have us drooling!
The Punch Around the Page system, where you can combine a corner punch and the border to create a flowing, all-around effect is so impressive. Here are our top five ideas for using the Punch Around the Page system…
Make a faux doiley
Make a doiley-effect panel to layer on to your card before adding the topper – the delicately edged background will be the perfect backdrop!
Jazz up your layouts
Punch all around a 12x12in sheet for a fancy edge to your scrapbook layouts. With so many punch designs to choose from, there’s sure to be something to suit the theme of your photos!
Craft beautiful gift tags
Use a more intricate design for edging a tag. You’ll only need a simple embellishment or message to finish it off and the border will be the star of your show!
Enhance your patterned papers
Edge a patterned paper with a more classic design like arches or scallops so that the punched shape complements the design on the paper.
Add texture & sparkle!
Get creative with your punch for maximum versatility! It’s all very well to create borders, but try threading ribbon through punched loops, or maybe colour or add glitter to the novelty punched shapes, for even more options for your Punch Around the Page system!
