Wednesday Wish List {Corner Rounder}

10 Aug

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.

1/4" Corner Rounder from Paper Source

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 …

Line up each corner using the guide

When you’re done, you’ll be left with a note card that has a little more of a custom, finished look.

Finished!

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!

    Riddle me this, can you round corners in the shape of homemade doilies?!!? Teasing. This is a pretty crafty gadget. It’s going on my wish list.
