To make the border shown above, Punch your border and attach a piece of patterned paper or cardstock beneath it.  I used a glue pen to fill in the leaves of the punch and applied the microbeads to the area.  I would suggest working over a plate or a piece of paper with all edges folded up because these little babies roll and bounce all over the place!  After applying the microbeads, use your finger to shape and mold the area and rub off any unwanted beads.  Hope this Quick Tip is useful!
