Scalloped Edges

Post by clmk523 on Thu Jul 09, 2009 12:05 pm

Decorative edges are back right after I got rid of all of my fancy scissors. That's okay, I never could cut very straight with them anyway. What do you use to get a decorative (scalloped or otherwise) edge on a straight edged paper?

Most of the time I like straight or distressed edges (torn) I have a pair of scissors like that and don't even use them often. Idk why?

I also like tearing and distressing, but have bought myself a Fiskars Border Punch (Threading Water), which I love, and have just ordered another border punch Very Happy I couldn't get the scissors to work like I wanted either......

those scissors make your edges crocked! You end up cutting up most of the paper and throwing it away than making use of it.

I bought it today! Thanks for the tip. Have you ever threaded anything through the holes?

I'm so happy I could help! Very Happy Yes, I have threaded narrow ribbon through the holes, but usually just leave them the way they are.

Here are a few examples where I have used it:



On this one I have crumpled up the edges after punching Smile

I love your work, Ingrid. I'm not much of a card maker, but I love the gate fold with ribbon close! The layout is gorgeous. Blue is one of my favorite and most frequently used colors and I'm a big fan of brackets!
