How do you like the top corners of my bookmark? I was so excited when one of my downline Pat Duggan emailed me and shared this new technique that her daughter Kim Duggan had discovered while playing with Stampin’ Up!’s new scallop edge punch, that I just HAD to share it with you. It is so easy it’s unbelievable – the tutorial is all of 2 pictures *lol*!
Step 1: To create this corner, you need to hold your punch upside down so that you are looking at the underside of the punch. The way in which you align your CS in the punch is the most critical thing to achieving this type of corner. You need to center one of the full scallops in the corner of your CS, and then carefully push your CS into the punch as far as it goes (make sure the scallop remains centered)…and punch! That’s it! Repeat on the other side and your decorative corner is done (the next picture shows you what it looks like)
Step 2: This is the final outcome after punching both top corners. Decorate your bookmark as desired (I’ve included a supply list of what I used to decorate mine below). Stay tuned tomorrow for my Featured Stampin’ Up! Artist of the week.
