“I love making use of paper scraps and creating my own custom embellishments. Here’s a fun way that utilizes what we already have to create something new. Using a paper border punch or chain punch, you can quickly transform paper into what I call a paper collar embellishment – a base for which you can add ready made dimensional embellies on top of it or a layered base to add a floral embellishment. So many possibilities once you get started!” – Pearl Liu, Pebbles Design Team Member
To start, using a lace border punch design of your choice, punch out a strip of paper chain/border with at least 4-6 segments.
Cut your paper chain into 4 whole segments. I trim my border strip to a width of about 1/2″ when using a border design.
Glue the first 3 segments as shown here, at right angles to each other. I used my tape runner for adhesive but liquid glue is also fine.
Here’s how it looks with 4 pieces all adhered.
Add your embellishment of choice on top of your paper collar for a fun new layered look. Pebbles papers are two sided so you have the happy option of choosing one of 2 colors to match your project.
Experiment with different border punch designs to get more out of your Pebbles’ paper scraps and border punches! And here are my quickly altered wooden clothes pegs that I’ve made with my new embellies.
