To create the border as shown:

Punch out two strips of the Evergreen Border Cartridge in each of the following colours: Evergreen Cardstock, White Cardstock, and Brown cardstock.

Leave the Brown borders as – is.

Cut the trees off of the Evergreen borders.

For the white trees you are going to end up using the bottom strip that is scalloped to look like snow as well as the tree tops. For each tree top, cut the top of the tree off at random so that they all look unique.

Next you’ll use the Repositional Adhesive to adhere the layers of the tree together. The Brown remains the base, the tree tops are adhered in a strip to the Brown. The White “snow” is adhered then to the tops of the trees as well as along the bottom.

To double up your strips you need to cut one of the trees off of the back row of trees and adhere the rows of trees together so that the back trees peek out between the front trees.


Have you seen the new punches that we just launched that would make fabulous borders?
