  3. Looks good. I just bought a Martha Stewart set from TJMaxx and need to practice using it so I can get the corners just right. May need to watch some videos too.

  16. You did a wonderful job with the MS edge punch. I had to practice to get the hang of these sort of edge punches and still make mistakes. One thing to remember is that the paper hs to be a certain size for the punch to come out properly and lining it up is very important. Have a nice day.
