Ruffle Edge Tutorial

As promised, here is a tutorial for my Stampin Up Presentation…the projects are easy and fun to make!  Again, thanks to fellow demonstrator, Jan Tink (Janine Tinklenberg) for her inspiration (okay, she came up with the ruffle edge part…and best yet she allowed me to use it for my presentation in front of 500+ people!! Check out this post…

I made a box you can see how here:


I then covered the box with printed paper and now I am going to decorate the box with a scallop ruffle edge. 


Here is what you need:

Scallop border punch

1×12" piece of printed paper

Sticky Strip

Wide Oval Punch

Paper Crimper


Scallop one edge of the printed paper (I used the "A Walk in the Park" printed paper from the Occasions Mini catalog.

IMG_4300 Then run that piece through the paper crimper.

The crimper allows for "pleating" of the piece which will help you get it around the oval in a minute…

IMG_4301 Now, place sticky strip on the back side of the wide oval–this will be bumpy and not pretty, but all that matters is that you get the sticky strip on the very edge of the oval.

IMG_4304 See…not pretty but well covered! 🙂

Next, pull off the backing….

IMG_4307 Now, come back to the printed paper piece.  Start pleating….then pull that oval out and start sticking!

IMG_4308 I find the easiest way to do this is to start with the oval (sticky side down) and press the pleats to it.  Remember, you need to keep "pleating" or gathering those crimped bumps to keep it nice and even all the way around!

IMG_4309 See…lookin' good!

IMG_4310 When you get to the end, cut the excess tail off and turn it over.

Add a little sticky strip to the beginning edge, and stick the tail down.  Trim any excess.  Most of the time I am able to line scallops up, so it looks perfect!

IMG_4311 Ooooh LaLa…looks pretty!

IMG_4312 Double stack dimensionals and then stick to the box…


And finally,,,,here is the finised box!  ADORABLE (If I can say so!!)

Hope you enjoyed it!!
