Playing around with the new Circle Weave Border Maker Cartridge, I discovered it can create some versatile looks. I love how it plays off of the Lace Flower Chain and Chevron shapes, too. For these borders, I tried it out using several of my favourite Collections: Fall In, Fresh Picks, Cool Serenity and Natural Elegance Wedding.
To create these borders, you’ll need:
- Original Border Maker System with Circle Weave, Lace Flower Chain and Chevron Cartridges
- 12″ Straight Trimmer
- 2-Way Corner Rounder
- Tape Runner and Repositionable Tape Runner Refill
- Foam Squares
- Fall In Paper Pack and Slide-In Pack
- Fresh Picks Paper Pack and Slide-In Pack
- Cool Serenity Paper Pack, Slide-In Pack and Stickers
- Natural Elegance Wedding Paper Pack, Slide-In Pack and Stickers
- Bright Green (Travel), Eggplant, Grey, Beige and Peacock Blue Cardstock
Fall In Border
- Cut a piece of purple paper to 2.25″ x 12″. Tear a piece of striped paper to about 2″ x 12″ and adhere on top of purple strip.
- Using Circle Weave cartridge, punch 2 borders with grey cardstock and 1 each with beige and peacock blue cardstock. Using repositionable tape runner, adhere peacock blue border on top of beige, adjusting the circles so that the beige peeks out behind the blue. (Trim overhanging piece of blue and attach to opposite end.) Attach grey pieces underneath, creating a shadow effect. Mount on top of border.
- Trim a Slide-In card and add to your page as an accent.
