curve from a border punch

Please be patient with me, this is my first tutorial! Supplies: straight edge trimmer, punch, micro tip scissors, tape runner, paper.
Punch edge of 12 x 12 paper
trim border so there is about 1/4" of paper below the punch

using micro tip scissors, make small cuts about 1/4" apart (I usually cut where it seems natural on the punch design)

start at one end and fold overlapping to form a circle

on the back of your stamped image run tape runner around the edges

start to adhere border to image

this is what it will look like on the front

finished back

Ta Da!! Finished product!

Thanks! Hope you enjoyed my first tutorial!
