Find Out About Friday - How to make an easy lattice border for your Cards and Scrapbook Pages

For this week's Find Out About Friday I am going to show you an easy way to make a lattice border such as this one for your cards and scrapbook pages

This striking and stylish effect can be easily obtained using the Chevron Border Punch from Stampin' Up! It can also be obtained with intricate cutting and folding, but I find this method much quicker and easier!

Firstly you punch a chevron border where you want your lattice work to be. The punch will leave you some v shaped off cuts - do not throw these away. Turn your project over and apply some adhesive to the back of the chevrons. Take the v shaped off cuts and stick them on as shown below. I have used chevrons of another colour so you can see the placement more easily.
