Happy Independence Day Border

Step 1: Cut a 12″ x 3-1/4″ strip of sky blue patterned paper for the base. Using the 12-inch Trimmer with the Stamping Blade, cut a 12″ x 2-3/4″ strip of red patterned paper and adhere to the base.

Step 2: With the 12-inch Trimmer and the Straight Blade, cut a 12″ x 2″ piece of royal blue fireworks patterned paper. Starting at 2-1/2″ from one end, punch with the Firecracker Punch. Move it over slightly and punch again. Move it over slightly and punch a third time. Adhere the strip to the border. Cut out the “Happy Independence Day” strip from the sheet of borders and boxes and adhere it underneath the royal blue fireworks piece.

Step 3: Punch three Firecrackers from Cloud Cardstock. Adhere in the firecracker-shaped “holes” in the royal blue fireworks strip.
