Before I found and purchased my Martha Stewart doily heart border punch, I was in need of something "heart-y" for Valentine's Day projects, so I came up with this:

Sorry I didn't have time to make an actual project with my punched border - too much going on today - but there's an idea for you, anyway! Try other combinations of border-and-hand-held (or just small) punches, or decorative-edge scissors and punches, too!
