I had so much fun making the border on my MojoMonday sketch 103 card that I did it again!
I also decided it was time to try and write a tutorial. This border is a simple one so I assume it will be simple to write instructions about it. You be the judge!
Strip of cardstock 2 1/4" width and long enough for your project
Martha Stewart Loops Corner Punch
5/8" circle punch
Pencil and ruler
Step 1: Draw a line 1 1/8-inch from edge of paper. I used a marker so the line would show up, but a pencil is suggested.
Step 2: Start at one end of the cardstock and without opening up the corner guides on the MS Loopy Corner punch, slide the punch to the line until the side angle tips on each side of the loops are aligned with the line you made on the cardstock. Punch.
Step 3: Slide the punch along the line being careful of the fragile loops just punched until the angle tip barely overlaps the punched out tip from the previous punch. (If you look closely you can see the small black area on the right side of the loops. This is the tip of the previous punch.)
Punching completed! NOTE: Do not throw away the zigzag looking half that we usually throw away. This will be used as part of the layering.
Step 4: Using the 5/8-inch circle punch make as many circles needed for your punched edge. Adhere them. I used mono-adhesive.
Step 5: Align the zigzag half with the points to the loop half positioning as close or far away as desired. Adhere this piece to the dotted loopy half. Once you have the strip measured and trimmed to the length of you card or project use some ribbon to cover up the top edge of the strip. Add it to your project and you are finished.
Mark line on paper, punch with Loopy Corner Punch just as you did in the main tutorial with the exception that you do not need to keep the zigzag punched out portion.
Here's a closer look at the finished edge.
Now hold the finished edge with the loops facing away from you and slide your Stampin' Up card slit punch over the pointed part between the loops sections. Position it so the top of the card slit vertically aligns with the tip to be punched off. I also move the punch around until it kissing the edge of the cardstock so its a smooth half circle when I'm done punching.
Well that was a long tutorial. Thanks for staying with me through it all. Now I'm off to bed. I have to get some sleep sometime this week!
