Tutorial – Easy Circle Border


Here is a quick and easy tutorial to making a border “punched” edge for your circles!

The Martha Stewart edge punches, “Punch Around the Page”, are super popular right now…and here is another way to use those “corner” punches.

1.  Using your corner punch…punch multiple punched corners out of the paper of your choice.

2. Cut the punched shapes out as uniformly as you can…leaving a lttle bit of an edge that will be used to glue down behind the circle.

4. Using your preffered adhesive…apply around the edge of the back of your circle.  *I use a plate in the size desired to draw my circle on the back of my selected paper, and then cut it out with scissors.

5. Glue the punched pieces to the back edge of the circle, with the front (in this example, the colored side) showing towards the front of the circle.  I slightly overlapped the punched shapes uniformly around the circle.

Here is a photo of the finished circle.  I made this for my latest Design Team assignment at www.twistedsketches.com – I will be posting the full layout this up-coming Wednesday, so be sure and check back here or to www.twistedsketches.com for the full reveal!

    Wow Nancy! That border looks super cool! I can’t wait to see the entire layout! What is the twist? My guess is border, circle or punch?

    Oh my…this is one CRAZY technique! Awesome, but crazy! If a technique is too finicky or takes too long, I usually just give up…but the results are so great-looking I just might have to try my hand at it!

    Love that final page! The colors you chose are incredibly complementary. There’s a way to do it without cutting the edges out but I haven’t seen a tute for it yet- just the resulting circle.
