Wonderful instructions Jacky.....TFS!


Thanks that is awesome - just a question is it just as easy to do all four corners? Like a photo mat - I'm having trouble doing this without a lot of measuring to know where to cut edge



Thanks Jacky for those instructions!
Great layout too :)

Jacky does it matter what size the paper is? I did mine a little differently the other week and could get 3 corners to work but couldn't get the 4th one. Just wondering if certain sizes are better to work with.


Great tutorial! I love scallops & being able to create my own scallop corners is a huge $$ saver. Thanks for sharing.


Fantastic tutorial there! I didn't think you could "turn" corners with it so now I am stoked!

Good questions...I find that as long as you line the edge of your paper up with the ridge as you do your corners, you should have no problem doing squares or rectangles. I start with a bigger piece of paper and as I come into the corner I mark off the ridge with pencil on my paper and then trim it down with my trimmer, then re-insert it to check that its lined up perfectly before I do the flip and turn. So no measuring required.

The corners really are the tricky bit, so I would also suggest that you double check that you have corner lined up after you have flipped and turned the paper, by turning the punch and paper over while holding the paper in place and check that it is lined up correctly. you could even punch the corner while holding the punch upside down.

hope this helps
