Cardstock Ric Rac

First please excuse the movement of the camera. My.......ahem.......tripod, also known as the light fixture above my table, was moving and I didn't wait until it stopped. So, in the beginning, the camera sways back and forth some. If you have any questions, leave them in the comments and I will answer them in a new post. I'm also including some close up photos so you can see how your cardstock should be positioned. P.S. Please excuse my fingernails in the photos! I had my nails done a while back and they were driving me crazy so I pulled them all off and my nails look terrible right now! Sorry!

Click on the photos for a SUPER DUPER enlarged version where you can really see the details...bad nails and all!! LOL

This 1st photo shows how to line up the edge of your cardstock to get a full scallop on your first punch.

This 2nd photo shows how much you should see of the previous punch when you line up for the next punch.

This 3rd photo shows how to line up the end when you flip it to start the other side in order to get a half scallop.

This photo shows what NOT to do! This is too much of the previous punch showing and the last photo show what happens when you punch it.

Candy Purse

These little purses are super cute and easy to make!! They would be a perfect party favor for a little girl's party. I forgot to mention in the video that the ovals are cut with the cricut at 4.5 inches.
