See those fancy corners? I made them with a corner punch. Here's how:

irst of all, make a square medallion with a corner punch. Then cut them in half as shown above.

Next, trim along the inside to match the rest of the shape.

Lastly, cut off the little pieces that protrude and make it look unfinished. Then all you have to do is glue them down! (I used a liquid glue similar to Mono Multi.)
