WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #96 – USING THE BRAIDED BORDER PUNCH!

Wednesday’s WOW! #96 today I want to show you the new punch in the catalogue.  The Braided Border Punch.  I think it is pretty but I think there are a few tricks to using it too.  So let’s check it out.

You can find it on page 29 of the 2020 Mini Catalogue.

As with most of the border punches, to punch your card.  Slide in your card, rest the card against the small ridge on the punch and press down.  Then to re-punch, slide the card along and you can match up the pattern on the base of the punch.  Then you can punch again.  Repeat this along the card for the length you want.

You can buy the punch on it’s own but it co-ordinates nicely with the Beautifully Braided stamp set. And getting the bundle saves 10%!

In the stamp set is a lovely “lattice” style stamp that can stamp over the punched Braided border.  There is also a flourish stamp strip too.

But how you can line this up easily on the punched piece? I have some tips for you today.

Using the Stamparatus will greatly help you.

Firstly punch your piece of card to the length needed.

Place your strip of card in the Stamparatus.  Place it in the corner to rest the card against the edge so it is lined up.

Position the stamp upside down on to the punched piece so you can line it up properly with the punched area.  Using the side plate close up the Stamparatus plate to pick up the stamp.

Ink up the stamp, Fold over the plate to stamp on the punched card.  If you need to stamp further along then, slide the plate down the hinges, ink up the stamp and stamp down again.

Hope these tips are helpful to get the best out of this gorgeous punch.  Below are some samples from Stampin’ Up! to show these lovely stamps and punch.

This is pretty with the rows of punched braids.  This one has the flourishes stamped.  I think it would help to line this up on the Stamparatus as well.

This one below has ribbon threaded through the braids.  That’s a clever idea!
