Shine Layout with Paisley Border

The Fiskars AdvantEdge™ Border Punch System has no shortage of awesome border designs!

What I love about it is that it creates these enormous borders that command attention, turning even the simplest of layouts into “WOW” pages.

Here’s how I made this “shine” layout:

1) Use a 12" x 12" orange patterned paper as the page background.

2) Trim a turquoise cardstock to measure 10" x 10".  Adhere it to the center of the background page.

3) Cut a 3.5" x 9.5" orange patterned paper strip.  Cut a V-notch on one of the short ends.  Add this to the left side of the turquoise cardstock with the V-notch at the bottom.

4) With foam adhesive, adhere a 2.75" x 10" turquoise paisley-punched border to the right side of the turquoise cardstock.

5) With foam adhesive, adhere a 2.75" x 10" light blue paisley-punched border along the right edge of the turquoise cardstock.

6) Double-wrap a piece of baker's twine on the right side of a horizontal 5" x 7" photo.  Add the photo to the page as shown.  Hang a small tag on the baker's twine.

7) Apply a short title below the photo.
