Work Shop Wednesday #4............Punch Around the Page

Hi, everyone! I hope you all had a beautiful and blessed Thanksgiving? I had a nice quiet one. This is the first Thanksgiving in a long time, that we didn't have our children here. I missed them a lot, but I have to respect and understand that they have families of their own now and I'm okay with that.

Today is work shop wednesday, so I'm posting something today that I think we all have had problems with at one time or another. I know I have!

This is a tutorial on punch around the page. I found this tutorial on Check it out! I think it could be a big help to a lot of us.

Thank you for stopping by. Hugs, Brenda

Punch Around the Page

by Beate Johns
Create perfect borders and corners with Martha Stewart's new punch combo.



  1. Step 1

    Pull out the guide wings of the corner punch.

    Slide one corner of the cardstock into the punch. Make sure both sides of the cardstock line up right against the sides of the guide.
  2. Punch down.

    For seamless punching, you will need to start out with certain cardstock measurements. Those are 3 1/4", 5", 6 3/4", 8 1/2", 10 1/4" or 12".

    Instructions are included in the packaging, but you can find them here, too!
