Morocco Lace Border Punch Square Tutorial

 Have had questions how I got the corners to come out on the square on my Angie's Challenge card with the Morocco Lace Border Punch by EK Success.


Begin with a 5" square.  Starting in the middle, punch along one side, then punch the opposite side.


You will have about two thirds of a scallop left on each end of the border.

Punch the other two sides again starting in the middle of the side.
 
The end result should be nice even corners.  If there are little notches, just trim with a scissors.

I've tried this with the Fleur de Lis, but it just does not come out even, but I would think some of the other scallop punches would work well too, it is just a matter of finding what size of square to start with.

Have also had some questions about how to make the flowers.  I will be working on some very basic information to put into some tutorials and then can make some other recommendations.

If you live in the Twin Cities metro area of Minnesota, e-mail me if you are interested in attending Floral Punch classes.  (Link to e-mail is on the sidebar.)
