Handmade Rick Rack

 I have something quick and easy to share for our Monday Montage Blog Hop.  I have made my own handmade rick rack using the Envelope Punch Board.  I started with a 1" x 5 1/2" strip of cardstock.  Then I put the long edge of the strip in the board with the far end aligned at the 5" mark and then punched the knob.  The next step is to position the strip at 4" and then punch, then 3" punch, 2'' punch, 1" punch and then one last punch with the end right in the middle of the opening of the punch, the opening where you start the scoring.  Rotate the strip of paper 180" and punch again at 5", 4", and so on.  That finishes your rick rack.

To layer a piece on top I started with a 3/4" x 5 1/2" DSP and then punched exactly the same way as the 1" strip of cardstock.  Pretty cool don't you think?  I thought I was pretty clever.  Speaking of clever, venture on through the entire hop and be inspired.
