Hi there blog friends! I have a Becca Bit to share with you today that’s a spin off of the card I did yesterday with the punched frame. So many of you asked me to walk through how I punch that frame and get it to line up – so I show you how. Although every punch is different, I figure out how they align then I use this method.
After looking at the YouTube you might ask how do you figure out what the offset on a punch is. Play around with it :-) The offset is rarely more than 1″ and quite often is 1/2″, 5/8″ or 3/4″. I’ve also found that manufacturers rarely use an odd offset like 16th’s. To try to figure out the offset I usually try 1/2″ first, followed by 3/4″ then 5/8″. Try it by punching your border then cutting the edge past the border in one of the increments I just mentioned, then flip your corner punch over and try to tell how it is matched. It will either be end to end or a set of holes will align. Through trial and error, you should be able to find the offset. Write it down. You can use it to for getting your corners perfect or for punching around the corner without the corner punch!!
