|EK Success Corner Punch In Action|
Here is a tutorial video showing a variety of corner punches and the results of punching the same size circle with the various punches that are pictured below. The Martha Stewart Topiary Corner Punch is the one used for the instructional part of the video.
If you prefer written instructions, instead of videos, please scroll down to the bottom of the post to see some suggestions about this technique.
Posted below are the various Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page Corner Punches that I have used and their corresponding doilies:
|Martha Stewart Double Arches|
|MS Doily Lace Corner Punch|
|MS Double Loops Corner Punch|
|MS Flower Shower Punch|
|MS Heart Chain Corner Punch|
|MS Loops Edge Corner Punch|
|MS Spider Web Punch Around The Page Corner Punch|
|MS Topiary Corner Punch|
I don't have the SU! Corner Punches posted here because I am uncertain of their names. I have had them for many years and do not know whether or not they are still available. Please leave me a comment to let me know if you try this. :-) If you try this technique with any corner punches that are not posted here, I would love to see your results!
Here is an example of how I used the Spider Web doily. The center of it was cut out using the MS Large Circle cutter after punching the shape around the perimeter of the circle.

And here is the Loops Doily with the center removed:

Flip the corner punch over to see where to line up the punch. The picture at the very top of the post shows the back side lined up near the edge of the paper. Punch around the edge of the circle slightly overlapping the previous punched area. If your punching doesn't end up exactly matched up, you can place an embellishment at that spot. :-)
If you are mathematically inclined, you could measure the perimeter of the circle and figure out whether the punch is the correct size to end up exactly evenly given the circumference to punch size ratio. Punches vary in size and everyone punches a little differently, so I have no specific guidelines for this. Just a little observation though, the smaller the circle, the more noticeable a gap may be.
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
