Using a Border Punch on a Scrapbook Layout

Scrapbook layout

Add punched borders to add interest to your next layout!

I used the AdvantEdge™ Punch System and its adapter with the Laundry List border cartridge to punch out 12-inch long borders. Using the AdvantEdge system makes punching these long borders very easy, as the system clicks into place continuously.

Next I trimmed off the top of each border using the Easy Action Micro Tip Scissors No. 5 and then adhered the borders onto my background paper.

Once I added all the borders I had punched, I layered more patterned papers, and added my photos on top.

I also adhered some of the punched borders again. I added some wooden clothespins to finish off the layout.
