I have recently bought this wonderful edging tool, which turns plain paper/cardstock/vellum into something special. I used it on my "This is My Greece" layout if you want to look at the results. Here's a picture of the actual tool and I can honestly say I am really delighted with it. It is simple to use, as the markings along the top mean you can align the scallops easily so you get no breaks in a 12" edge - presumably you could go on ad infinitum if you wished!!!

Well worth the 10.95 it cost me. Will pay for itself by saving on having to buy scalloped edge cardstock (well, that was my reasoning anyway!!!)

I too have a couple of the Border punches (I think I sent Maria some bits done with one) and for your sake I hope they've made them better now. That one looks really nice though, I must say.

The old blue ones seem to get stuck in the paper a lot. Mind you, it looks that that one will punch through card and the blue one's wouldn't.

Spooky, someone was asking if anyone had one of these at the crop I went to yesterday, and they did. I was expecting something really dramatic, and still can't see what it has to do with water. However, I'd be impressed if my mum got me one as a pressie (she's sometimes very good like that), looks v useful.

i think !!!! well its only my thoughts no one elses , but the water bit might be the scallop that imitates waves ie water , then the punched holes are where you can thread ribbon through .....can you tell that i have wondered where the name comes from too lol!

So have I - personally, I thought it was supposed to be "treading" not "threading" but I agree about the waves on the shore. Whatever it is, it works a treat on card of all thicknesses as well as papers. I love it!

It wouldn't be easy Heather, these punches aren't like Martha Stewart ones. Maybe with a bit of fiddling, you could.

OK. I actually have a couple of these and just assumed you could'nt do corners, but just thought maybe I was mistaken.

Best corner rounder in the world is the Crop-a-dile Corner Chomper which my DD bought for me some time ago. Wouldn't be without it!
