"I love making use of paper scraps and creating my own custom embellishments. Here's a fun way that utilizes what we already have to create something new. Using a paper border punch or chain punch, you can quickly transform paper into what I call a paper collar embellishment - a base for which you can add ready made dimensional embellies on top of it or a layered base to add a floral embellishment. So many possibilities once you get started!" - Pearl Liu, Pebbles Design Team Member
To start, using a lace border punch design of your choice, punch out a strip of paper chain/border with at least 4-6 segments.
Cut your paper chain into 4 whole segments. I trim my border strip to a width of about 1/2" when using a border design.
Glue the first 3 segments as shown here, at right angles to each other. I used my tape runner for adhesive but liquid glue is also fine.
Here's how it looks with 4 pieces all adhered.
Add your embellishment of choice on top of your paper collar for a fun new layered look. Pebbles papers are two sided so you have the happy option of choosing one of 2 colors to match your project.
