Here Comes the Bride Border
Step 1: Cut a 2-3/4″ x 12″ strip of beige patterned paper for the base. Mount the half circle scroll laser-cut embellishment in the middle of the base so 1-5/8″ of it hangs below.
Step 2: Using the 12-inch Trimmer Scallop Blade, cut a 3/4″ x 12″ strip of pink stripe patterned paper. Adhere it to the base, just above the lower edge.
Step 3: Punch a border with the Lace Trim Border Punch and green patterned paper. Trim to measure 1/2″ x 12″ and adhere it on top of the pink striped piece. Cut a 2″ x 12″ strip of branch patterned paper and mount it on top. Align it with the top of the base and let it overlap the green lace trim piece.
Step 4: Punch a border with the Doily Border Punch and both pink and beige patterned papers. Trim a half flower off the end of the pink border and 1-1/2 flowers off the beige border. Adhere them to the middle of the branches strip, overlapping as shown.
Step 5: Add the “Here Comes the Bride” and flower stickers with Foam Squares.
Happily Ever After Border

Step 3: Cut a 1-3/4″ x 12″ strip of floral patterned paper and mount it on the base 1/4″ from the bottom edge. Add the beige floral border sticker on top of this piece and then the leaves border sticker as shown.
Step 4: Top with leaves, “Happily Ever After” and red flower stickers, popping the latter up with Foam Squares.
Forever Always Border
Step 1: Cut a 2-3/4″ x 12″ strip of pink stripe patterned paper for the base. Using the 12-inch Trimmer Scallop Blade, cut a 2-1/4″ x 12″ strip of White Cardstock and mount it on the base.
Step 2: Punch a border using the Basketweave Border Punch with wood patterned paper and adhere it to the white strip. Cut a 1″ x 12″ strip of leaf patterned paper and a 5/8″ x 12″ strip of green patterned paper. Adhere them on top of the baseketweave border as shown.
Step 3: Overlap two shaped mats and adhere them to the lower third of the border, about 2-1/2″ from the left edge. Trim off the excess.
