Default Want to make the photo corner? Look here.

OK I'm not sure if this has only been discussed in the demo forum or what-but it seems EVERYONE has wondered how SU made the photo corner on the front of the SU catalog.
Well, after playing around and trying to figure it out I think I have the EASIEST way. Not sure if its how SU did theirs but hey, it works!
I'm attaching a photo with the written directions.
Also attaching a photo of the card I did.
Just thought I'd help you all who were wondering......
Happy Stamping-and please post any questions here.

You can't tell by the photo but it is cut in half.
Step 1-Use square punch of desired sixe or cut your own square
Step 2 Using your paper snip cut from one corner to NEAR end of other corner (DONT CUT IT IN HALF-YET)
Step 3- Trim one end to th center
Step 4 trim other end to center.
This gives you an even corner cover. If desired you may cut in half now, but I find it easier to put on my card if I don't. I assume once you get the tag corner you can cut even mitired (?sp) on the edges.
Have fun!

Cool! Thanks for the tip on the bigger photo corner! As far as the brown photo corners in the top sample on page 16, an easy way to do this is as follows:

1) Use the 1/4 inch square punch on a piece of cardstock.
2) Take the 3/4 inch square punch and center it over the 1/4 inch square.
3) Punch out
4) Cut in 1/2 diagonally

Clear as mud? I can post pictures if necessary.

Okay, they are kind of small....don't think I can edit my posts now to resize them. Let me know if you need them to be bigger and I can see if I can repost them in a larger size.
