Quick Way to Create Bracket Shapes for Scrapbook Pages and Cards

Here is a quick way to make bracket shaped pieces of paper and card for your Scrapbook Pages, your Cards and anything else you may want them for.

First, cut a piece of scrap paper slightly larger than the size of bracket shape you want.

Then, fold in half, turn 90 degrees and fold in half again so that you then have a quarter sized piece. 

Now draw your line  from one folded edge to the other following the outside edge of the paper – see the photogrpah below.

Now cut following the line you have just drawn.  You should end up with a shape like the one below.  The folds are on the left side and the bottom of the piece in this picture.

Open up the folded template you have just cut.

If you are not happy with the shape, re-fold and adjust the shape by trimming.  Similarly if , after offering it up to your project, it is too big, simple re-fold and trim.

When you are happy with your template, merely place it on your chosen piece of cardstock or paper, draw round and cut out.

You can use this method for any size bracket shape, and it’s worth keeping your paper templates, so that you can use them again, and/or make a cardstock copy.
