I chose to showcase using your border punches to make faux ribbon for gift wrap. 
 Its a great way to use up some scraps :)


Here I layered some coordinating pp punched with the same border punch.

 Tip : Its easier if you score the faux ribbon before you wrap especially
if the pp is thick.

Instead of bow or a flower for a gift topper why not
have stand up characters.


supplies : Best Creation Princess Ballerina, Robot lines,
Fiskars, EK Success border punches.


If you are here for Best Creation's Blog Hop,
you have arrived after seeing Debbie's great project,
and next you are off to see Tracy's.
