The craft punch is an inexpensive scrapbook tool that can be used as an aid in creating scrapbook pages. Scrapbook punches are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some craft punches even come in sets with shapes for a specific theme. For example, you may be able to buy a set of alphabet paper punches. Craft punch art can be used on different elements of your scrapbook layouts. One suggestion for using a scrapbook punch is to decorate your scrapbook page border.
First, cut strips of cardstock the same width for all four sides of the page. Use the scrapbooking craft punch to make a repetitive pattern along the strips of paper. Once you have punched out your border, you can glue the strips around your scrapbook page base and you will have a finished page border ready for photos and embellishments.
