Yep, you guessed right, that's this week's challenge over at Practical Scrappers. I have about 40 pairs of deco scissors (I refuse to do an exact count in case I have more than that), and very very rarely use them anymore. Why then do you ask did I go out and purchase border punch after border punch? ( no I won't even take a guess at a number here!)
I think both should have take a place ( ok maybe a smaller one) in every scrapbooker's arsenal.
Deco scissors can go where border punches can't ie. rounded shapes. each pair comes with two decorative options- don't believe me? Just flip your scissors over!
Anyone who's ever tried to cut a straight line with a pair will also see the value in a border punch.
The new designs for border punches are also often irresistible; from the simplest scallop, to stars, cupcakes, bunnies, flowers, lace- you name it!
So I've dusted all mine off, and come up with a page that's far from my usual boyish comfort zone.
I might just find a use for all those frilly edges after all!
Happy Canada Day! I hope to come back today or tomorrow with some pictures from the day.
