Love the look of pleats but don’t want to spend that much time? You can get this same look on your layout. First, you will need to cut squares from cardstock, about 2″ x 2″. Once you’ve done that, go ahead and ink around the edges of your squares and adhere them to your border strip. For a decorative trim, use a favorite punch or feel free to leave it as it is. Complete the look with a strip of ribbon.
