Make your own Border

Hello! Today I am going to focus on making a cool border around your LO with the help of dies from Cheery Lynn Designs. A cool, dimensional edge really makes a big impact when it's all put together.

(Don't mind the tape, my small lense was giving me attitude so I had to use another.)
For my scalloped border I cut several 1 1/2 inch circles from the Little Stackers Nesting Dies using sandable cardstock from Core' dinations. See the blue coming through? Cool, hugh? Cut each circle in half and glue each to the back around your LO.

Now for the pleated edge I used the Wittle Weavers die. This die cuts your paper into 9 - 1/2 inch wide strips. I seperated each strip, cut them into 2 inch strips, folded them in half and glued the open edges together.

Arrange them around your LO and you have a nice, fully dimensional border.

Here are some other dies I used to create this page:
Tropical Flower
Pretty Petal

See you back here next time!
