Martha Stewart Crafts Must-Have: Frame Border Punch


We love the idea of creating a party garland with this tool. Welcome guests by selecting colors that match the overall scheme and using the Frame Border Punch to create the nifty circles pictured above (bottom left). Because you can customize the size of the circles, the garland can be as big or as small as your event requires. Then simply paste printed letters into the center of the circles and string twine or ribbon through the open holes in your design.


Or add a touch of Parisian charm to a hostess gift with a treat box –- and let your guests glimpse a preview of your baking handiwork too! You can also opt for a treat bag instead of a box, using our handy project instructions.


Frame greetings creatively using the measurement guide provided with the tool. Once you know how much space you’ve got to cover, you’ll be able to easily map out the design of your card and ensure that all text will be visible. Then have fun with layered card stock in varying colors. You can do the same with photographs to create a fun, gallery-chic photo card.
