Faking the Word Window punch

So I LOVE the look of the Word Window punch but don't have it. I decided to just make my own little dohickes like those you get with the punch.
And here's how:

Cut a strip of cardstock the width and length you want. (see this way you have choices)
Here it is. (interesting note, that dark spot on my thumb knuckle is a burn from weeks ago that you cannot see in real life, but can see in the pic!)
Then you take your corner rounder and center your cut end in it. It is important to center it or it looks funky.
repeat on other end and there you have it. (sorry this one is blurry, not sure why, I tried and tried though)

I used it on the cards in this post.

I know it's not quite as cool as the actual Word Window punch, but I can't buy every cute thing and I think I'm gonna make this work for me for a while.

Ok, still sick I gotta go.

Hi Erin, thanks for that tute! I don't want to go in hock for every little supply either, so this will help me, since that punch is used so, so much. And love the cards you made with it, too, on the 24th!

hugs,
