Chevron Border Punch Background Tutorial

Chevron Border Punch, Starburst SayingsYesterday I showed you this card I made the background using the Chevron Border Punch.  The background is actually two pieces and are attached under the 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon. I promised you a tutorial on how to make it. So here goes.

There is a small mark on the edge of the punch as seen in this picture (actually there are two but for the purposes of this tutorial you only use the first one).  It shows the beginning of where it punches.

Line up the edge of your 2 1/4″ x 5.25″ cardstock to this edge and punch as you normally would going all the way to the end of your cardstock.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
