Hi there, Valerie here!! I just wanted to make a mini tutorial to show how to use the 4 in 1 punches to make beautiful borders for your cards or layouts (or any craft project!!). First, here's the card I made using one of the newest 4 in 1 punches, #310.
I used the punch with no inserts to make my border, and I also used the leftover piece from the punched border at the top of the card - it reminds me of a banner!!
To start my border I just make a random punch at the edge of a piece of paper, making sure that I punch through the end of the paper.
I then turn my punch over and line up the very farthest edge of the punched image with the punch, making sure they overlap a little so that it will make a complete border (see the photo below for punch placement at the blue circled spot – that's where the punched edge is showing under the punch) and punch through
I continue to do this right down the side of the paper, making sure to line up at the very edges, overlapping slightly until I get to the very end of the paper
You are now left with one punched border and the leftover zigzag piece
I hope that the tutorial helps you to make borders on your projects!! Have fun creating!!
