This week’s wish list item is one that I already have, but I thought I would share for anyone out there who enjoys making cards or other paper crafts. The corner rounder is a somewhat frivolous tool, but I really love it because it’s a simple way to give your paper crafts a more polished look. I picked this one up at Paper Source, but there are other varieties available at A.C. Moore or Michaels if you want to get a coupon online or from the Sunday paper.
This simple tool is easy to use and works much like a hole punch. Just start with a regular note card – I chose the information card insert from our wedding invitations, which is the size of a business card. Mine is a 1/4″ corner rounder, so it’s better on smaller items like this.
Line up each corner in the guide on the corner rounder and squeeze the handles, like so …
When you’re done, you’ll be left with a note card that has a little more of a custom, finished look.
I bought my corner rounder toward the end of the wedding planning process and used it on a couple of our last minute paper goods, including the program featured at the end of my post on picking the right ink. I hope this has given you some good ideas for putting the finishing touches on your latest craft projects!
