Another use for you Square Punches-Tutorial

You can use your Stampin' Up! square punches to make zigzag designs!!!  I used my 1/4" square punch on this card to create the zigzag strip.  See below for some photos showing how I did this.


I used Bashful Blue as my card base, Purely Pomegranate, Certainly Celery and the Cutie Pie Designer Paper for the top border.  I stamped the butterflies from Priceless in So Saffron, Purely Pomegranate and Certainly Celery and cut them out.  I bent their wings up and attached them to the card with the adhesive on their bodies to give them dimension.

How to make the Zigzags – I used the 3/4" Square Punch in these two photos.  You line up the corners of the punch with the edge of the cardstock and punch out a triangle.  Continue doing this all along the edge of the cardstock to create the zigzag design in various sizes.


This photo shows me using the 1/4" Square Punch in the same manner to make the zigzag pattern on the above greeting card.

Hope this makes sense, if not, leave me a comment and I will try to explain it a little better.

Thanks for looking!!!
