  1. Could someone please clarify on border #1, what do you mean by ‘light green patterned paper’? Light green splotches or light green gingham? And the ‘pink patterned’ as well. Totally cute ideas. Thanks!

    1. Glad you like the ideas! We put that because it really doesn’t matter what papers you use, but here are the specific ones we used! The green patterned paper is the light green grid paper and the pink patterned paper is the painted line paper. Happy creating :)

  2. The new Tulips Border Punch is a GREAT way to use up those colored scraps of paper that seem a shame to toss but who wants to keep piles of little scraps? While watching TV, you can fill up a little snack baggie full of tulip tops to make gorgeous borders for all those spring, garden tour, and Easter photos!

  3. When I use this border punch (and others with detailed cuts), my paper often gets stuck in the punch. Is there something I can do to keep the paper from sticking in the punch?

    1. Becky, there is a recommended weight of paper that works best in the punch. I know I’ve heard it, but right now, I can’t remember what it is. Perhaps if you call CM Customer Support, they can tell you.
