All The Pretty New Borders

Hey, peeps! I'm dropping in a few projects using the Stampendous Spring Borders Die Set. A set of 6 dies that work fabulously together dozens of options from fanciful to subtle!

Here are a few projects using I've posted here on my blog, take the links for supplies and instructions, as well as a new project to upgrade a simple bow.

Stop by the Stampendous blog after you browse my new project. There will be more inspiration all this week that you won't want to miss!

Now for my quick bow picker upper idea! I added this bow to my box and thought it needed a something a little extra. I was delighted to remember that this ribbon border die was in the Spring Border set. All it took was three cuts and some glue, then stringing the ribbon through after I trimmed the border die to match up where the bow would be tied. That it!

Supplies: I provide some product links that are through my Amazon Affiliate, and that means when clicked and purchased in the same session a few pennies are sent my way at no cost to you.
  • Spring Borders Cutting Dies Set (AZSTM)
  • Ribbon by Creative Impressions
  • Box (AZ, Michael's)

This is customized to the box I made so you will need to make adjustments to fit your container.
  1. Measure the circumference of the box and cut cardstock with die as many needed to go around the box and overlap one ribbon loop for gluing together.
  2. Glue borders together end to end except the last outer ends.
  3. Wrap around the box and make a mark where the two ends meet. Cut so the ends mirror each other.
  4. Thread ribbon through and tie around the box.
