Making Photo Corners & Beautiful Birthday Layout

Hi everyone!!  I LOVE photo corners.  I wanted to show you a quick and simple way to make photo corners.  I used a 1 1/2 by 1 1/2 square.  This is a square I got in a kit, but you can find many decorative squares on many of the cricut carts. 

Cut the square from corner to corner making 4 triangles.  I used my Martha Stewart paper cutter.  It may have been easier to use a ruler and a craft knife.

It is that easy!!!  I added a few dots with my white gel pen.

Imagine the endless possiblities with all the cricut carts. 

Here is the entire birthday layout I made with the photo corners.

Can you tell I LOVE my white gel pen?  Enjoy and have fun creating photo corners!

  1. Nice layout and great photo corners.

  2. For your happy birthday how did you make a shadow of it using your gypsy? I'd love to know how to do that with mine. I love your LO. Thanks for the tip on the photo corners too! :)


  3. Dana,

    I used the Gypsy Wanderings Cartridge that is loaded on the gysy for the Happy Birthday. I used the phrase/shadow feature. I hope this helps!!
