NOTE: The Birthday Banner stamp I used was not meant to be straight. I pulled it straight as I put it on my stamp block.
1. Cut your cardstock 3/8″ wide. This is between the 1/4″ and the 1/2″ mark on your ruler or Paper Trimmer. Leave it longer than you need it to be. This extra length gives you something to hold on to. If the length is too short, attach your 3/8″ cardstock to a Post-It Note so you have something to hole onto.
2. You can put the strip in several ways:
~Stick it in through the top between the metal layers where the punching occurs. Make sure the strip is lined up in the hole which will form the punched shape.
~Stick the strip in through the side. Pull up the end that went in first. Line up the other end with the pointed Punch hole. Line up the strip so it is straight in the punch hole ditch. Punch.
~Stick the Punched end in first, then line up the other end so it is where you want to punch. Again, make sure the strip is lined up with the sides of the punch hole. Punch
3. The Classic Label is the perfect size for Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
