Sure you could use a border punch or decorative scissors to come up with some attractive edging, but sometimes it's nice to have something on hand already. The Doodlebug Paper Frills come in lots of colors: I've got red, light blue, dark blue, yellow, and pink myself. There are 32 12-inch border pieces in each pack and there are several different designs in each pack. Definitely worth the price.

I'm a big Doodlebug fan, and these are my favorite of all their products. They are so versatile, perfect for several different scrapbooking styles. And, it isn't always obvious in the online pics, but there are actually 2 different color shades in each pack. These are easily adhered by running them through a Xyron machine.

Love the versatility of this product. These are great for a ribbon substitute or to cheat on making the scalloped edges that are really hot right now. You can use them anywhere on cards, layouts, etc. They attach easily and although it may be hard to see in the picture, there are a few different shades per package. However, you must be sure to keep them flat as they wrinkle and fold easily - my only complaint. But they are paper so what do you expect! Definitely recommend.

I really like all the Doodlebug Frills. I think they are handy for adding a quick embellishment to a LO. My only negative would be to say that I haven't found an easy way to adhere them to the page. You have to use a fine glue pen because some of the strips are very small. The frills are 12" long though, so they can go the length of a LO.
