Hi Parthenon ladies! This is the technique I was talking about, Barbara. I used the MS Loopy corner punch to punch the design around my circle. I started with a 10.25" circle and it "finishes" at about that same size, depending how far in you punch. I punched very close to the edge of the paper. The corner punch "wings" must be left folded in, of course.
Amy, thanks again for the links to Becca's website! She is very talented and I love how generous scrapbookers/crafters are in sharing their expertise.
