Project Instructions

Use a 12"x12" green patterned paper as the page background.

Trim the blue patterned paper to 10"x10", then round the corners with a ½" corner squeeze punch. Center blue paper on the page background.

Add a horizontal 1"x10" border-punched black cardstock strip to the bottom of the blue square.

Above the black strip, adhere a 3"x10" diagonal stripe patterned paper.

Place a 5"x8" vertical photo about 5/8" from the left edge of the blue square.

Add threaded buttons to the upper left corner of the photo.

Trim a 1½"x12" strip of the yellow, red, and green patterned papers. Then, border-punch both sides of each strip, making sure that the border design is identical on both edges. Machine-stitch each strip with black thread along the center. Adhere the strips vertically on the blank right side of the page, next to the photo.

With a 1¼"x3¼" piece of black cardstock, round the corners with a ¼" corner rounder squeeze punch. Apply the “always” stickers on it. Adhere it to the page using foam adhesive, overlapping the right edge of the photo.

Punch two 2" circles using the kraft colored cardstock. Apply the stickers “gentle” and “kind” to each one. Use the ShapeXpress and circle shape template to cut out 2½" circles using the green and the yellow patterned papers. Mat the 2" kraft circles with the 2½" colored circles.

Using the ShapeXpress and circle shape template again, cut out a 2½ " kraft colored circle and a 3" red patterned paper. Layer the kraft circle on top of the red circle, then apply the “perfect” sticker on it.

Adhere the words/circles as shown on the example using foam adhesive.


Fiskars® border punches can be used to create decorative paper ribbon. Fiskars provides options for creating varying sizes of circles, with squeeze punches and our Ultra ShapeXpress Cutter Tool, allowing you to layer many sizes.
