To create these projects you’ll need:

All Wrapped Up Borders

Step 1: Cut a 12″ x 3-3/4″ strip of cardstock for the base.

Step 2: Cut five 2″ x 2″ squares from a variety of designer papers. Adhere to the top edge of the base, leaving the second space from one of the sides bare (it will be covered by the circle shape).

Step 3: Cut a 12″ x 1/2″ strip of diagonal stripes designer paper and adhere it at the bottom edge of the base. Cut a 1/4″ strip of polka dot designer paper and adhere above it.

Step 4: Cut 12″ x 1/8″ strips of cardstock. Cut into 2″ lengths and adhere down the middle of each of the square “presents” as shown.

Step 5: Using the Infinity Chain Border Maker Cartridge, punch two borders from cardstock. Trim out each 2″ chain section with scissors. Cut each chain into two loops. Apply adhesive to the bottom of each loop and adhere three together to create a bow. Adhere on top of (and behind) each present as shown.

Step 6: Using the inside of the largest Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Green Blade, cut a circle from cardstock. Using the Blue Blade, cut a circle with white dot designer paper. Mount on top of the cardstock circle and adhere to the border, covering the bare spot.

Step 7: Punch balloons with the Double Balloon Punch from various paper scraps. Adhere to the circle along with a Party Time! title sticker, popping some elements up with Foam Squares for added dimension.
