Usually, we use the Original Border Maker System from Creative Memories to punch straight borders. But with some of the border maker cartridges, we can also punch square corners. I love how this technique works with the current Home Sweet Home and Rolling Sails Border Maker Cartridges!
I used papers, stickers and embellishments from the Welcome Home Collection and also embellishments from the White Rose Embellishments for my first example. I punched the corners of an 11-1/2″ x 11-1/2″ piece of Hot Fudge Cardstock using the Original Border Maker System with the Home Sweet Home Border Maker Cartridge.
For my second example, I used paper, variety mats, stickers and embellishments from the Serene Waters Collection and the Original Border Maker System with the Rolling Sails Border Maker Cartridge. I punched the corners of a 11-1/2″ x 11-1/2″ piece of Navy Cardstock.
You can also punch all four sides of a square piece of paper using the Rolling Sails and Home Sweet Home Border Maker Cartridge. As these cartridges have a 1″ pattern repeat, make sure to use a piece of paper that’s in a 1″ increment, such as 12″ x 12″, 11″ x 11″, etc. My example below was punched on an 11″ x 11″ piece of cardstock.
Please note that this technique does not work for all of the border maker cartridges. Please watch my YouTube video for a demonstration using other cartridges. I also show an alternative technique that works with some cartridges.
