My new toy

This is a border punch from Fiskars called "Threading Water". I love, love, love this punch. It's a scallop punch with holes perfect for threading ribbon, embroidery floss or adding an eyelet or brad.

I used to buy the pre-made scallop strips (what?? I know, dumb) because I was too lazy to cut them by hand and I could never get a straight strip of scallops. (Do you like the alliteration?) The threading water punch gives me a perfect 12-inch strip everytime. I am in love!

Check out the card I made using the threading water punch:

Scallop party

I lined up the paper along the grid marked on the punch and - tada! - the perfect scallops. I can't get that with scissors even if I tried.
