Jen's Jumpstart Video: American Crafts Knock Out Tool

I am a sucker for border punches. Of course, I did own a plethora of decorative scissors back in the day (does that date me?). What I love about border punches in the ability to get a perfectly straight border strip. Seriously. I love that! Those scissors were so hard to get straight (although I do still own a few).

I recently purchased the new American Crafts "Knock Out" tool and wanted to give it a try. I thought a helpful video might be fun so you could see how this whole concept works. In the video, I show you how to put the tool to use. Then I created the following card to help you see how nicely a border strip can dress up your project:

Here is a close-up shot of the card:
