Krislyn’s Inspiration:

I recently played with the Floral Circle Punch and found some fun ways to use the beautiful shape it creates! I’ve used various collections that I love to make these samples, but feel free to substitute any collection of papers and embellishments that you have on hand. Happy creating!

To create these borders you’ll need:

Step 1: Punch a border with the Tulips Border Punch with dark rose patterned paper. Trim to measure 12″ x 3″ to create the base.

Step 2: Using the 12-inch Trimmer Scallop Blade, cut a 12″ x 1-1/2″ strip of pink patterned paper. Adhere it to the base. With the 12-inch Trimmer Straight Blade, cut a 12″ x 1-1/4″ strip of yellow patterned paper and a 12″ x 1″ strip of floral patterned paper. Adhere to the border as shown.

Step 3: Punch a circle using the Floral Circle Punch with yellow patterned paper. Using the outside of the smallest Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Red Blade, cut a circle out of the middle, then cut the floral circle in half. Adhere just behind the tulips as shown.

Step 3: Punch a circle using the Floral Circle Punch with Black Cardstock. Cut off a 2-1/2″ semi-circle piece. Using the outside of the medium-sized Custom Cutting Circle Pattern and the Blue Blade, cut a semi-circle with yellow patterned paper. Using the same pattern and the Green Blade, cut a semi-circle with red patterned paper and mount it on top of the yellow semi-circle. Adhere to the floral circle so that just the scallops show. Trim off excess from straight edge as needed. After removing a few raised hearts from the embellishment, adhere to the border as shown.

Step 3: Punch a circle using the Floral Circle Punch from the mat the says “The Great Outdoors”. As it is not a 6″ square, punch just the top of the circle. Trim the bottom off so you have a 3″ tall semi-circle, and adhere to the middle of the border as shown.

Step 4: Punch a border using the Songbirds Border Punch with Black Cardstock. Trim and place sections of the border on either side of the floral circle. Add the evergreens sticker with Foam Squares.
