Tool Tip of the Day

I picked up this clever tip from Patty Bennett, A Stampin’ Up demonstrator in California.  I know how much you love your Stampin’ Up! punches! Here’s a twist on using your Scallop Border punch as a tool to create a wavy card stock strip which will in turn add a unique embellishment to your paper projects.
Step 1: Take an Old Olive strip of card stock and stamp using Old Olive ink and a floral or other loose design stamp. 

Step 2: Punch one edge of the stamped strip using the Scallop Edge Border punch clip_image002
Step 3: Turn card stock strip around and insert back into punch making sure to offset the scallops. Punch to create a wavy card stock strip!

You can see the end result below.  Pretty clever way to form a wavy scallop strip without purchasing another punch.  Note the design image on the strip.
