I had a comment on my card yesterday asking how to round only one edge of the sentiment strip or how to make it a longer strip. I know most of you already know this little trick, but it’s easier shown then explained.


Step one:
Stamp your sentiment on the bottom edge of your cardstock piece.


Step Two:
Cut your cardstock into a 3/8″ strip.

Hint: You can cut the strip first and then stamp. I just find it easier to stamp first and then cut. This way your sentiment will always be in the center of the strip.


Step Three:
Slide your cardstock strip through your window word punch like shown.


Step four:
Punch your strip. It will only round the one edge that was inserted into the punch.





Alternate Punches:
Try it with any circle or oval punch. The key tag punch and even the round tab punch will work as well. Or course there are always corner rounder punches that do the same.
