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.
Step 1Pull 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.
- 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!
