Some stampers are able to eyeball things (e.g., centering a stamped panel on a mat) and some of us need a little help (e.g., with a ruler). I myself cannot cut a round pizza into 8 equal pieces. (Okay, that’s not a huge skill deficiency and, no, I don’t get out the ruler to ensure precision in this case!) Anyway, you may find this tip useful in your paper crafting!
- With a straightedge, mark a line from one point to the opposite “crotch.”
- Mark another line from any other point to its crotch.
- The intersection of those two lines is the center of the star. Pierce or punch at that intersection and affix the brad.
No, I haven’t forgotten that I promised the tutorial on the paper roses/carnations. I’ll see you next Tuesday with that tip, for sure.
Now, what can I do with this embellishment, hmmmm?
