It's a pain that you need different corner-rounders for different size pieces of card or paper. The one I have is fine to round the corner of a traditional A6-size card but useless for smaller bits: however, if you have a collection of fancy-edge scissors, try this trick.

Use the scissors with a wave effect (or a scallop, if it's big enough). Centre the higher part of one of the waves on the corner you wish to round and cut. If you don't get it exactly right and leave a little flat or sticky-up bit, just trim with scissors.

I have 4 pairs of corner scissors, but I still prefer my little XCut corner
punch. I was playing with my fringe scissors earlier as well (scissors
with five blades that all cut at once.)

Or you could be lucky enough to have as a birthday gift a simply splendid piece of equipment called a "corner chomper" which will even round the corners of foam, card, chipboard, plastics and acetate! (Thank you again Mia! x)
