5 Black & White Scrapbook Borders that Pack a Punch

“Graphic,” “striking” and “bold” pretty much sum up the new Black & White collection. Add that to the new Double Chevron Border Maker Cartridge and Starburst Punch, along with your favourite Cardstock colours and you have all you need to make some seriously snazzy scrapbook borders! In fact, we’ve come up with 5 scrapbook borders you’ll want to make. The best part – they can be used for nearly any occasion, from birthdays to graduations to weddings and on and on.

I especially love how they look on the beautiful Black and White Fast2Fab™ pages!

To make these scrapbooking borders you’ll need:


Daisy Smile Border

P3142297

  1. Cut a 2-1/2″ x 12″ strip of white Designer Paper for the base.
  2. Using the Double Chevron Cartridge, punch a border with black paper. Trim to 1-1/4″ x 12″. Repeat. Align the borders on the base so that the chevron points are facing the middle as shown.
  3. Using the Dancing Daisies Cartridge, punch a border with Raspberry Cardstock. Adhere down the middle of the border.
  4. Punch 12 small daisies from white paper. Mount with Foam Squares to the “o” shapes on the dancing daisy border. Top with small black flower centres made by punching a few times with the Scallop Dot Cartridge. Precision Point Adhesive is the best for adhering these tiny dots!
  5. To create the title box: Cut around the “Your Smile Says Everything” mat using the inside of the Square Pattern and the Green Blade. Cut a square from the black dot mat using the Red Blade. Mount the title on the mat using Foam Squares. Embellish with more daisies.
