Cuttlebug Borders

I feel like I've discovered something wonderful, everyone else has probably already thought of this but to me it's a revelation,LOL.
I wanted some little flowers to put down the edge of a page I was doing last night and didn't have anything suitable, so I used one of the new Cuttlebug embossing borders and then cut them out. Viola! I was chuffed. We have had these folders for a couple of weeks but I haven't really had a play with them, thinking I'd use them next time I make cards, but I think they will become a regular Scrap tool as well. Hope someone else has as much of a buzz playing with this idea as I did.

And I guess I may as well add the layout I used them on, it's a gatefold 11x7 book that I've been working on for my two best friends (who are sisters). I've been on this book for literally about two years but I'm pleased cos when I started it there weren't the gorgeous vintage papers, and cool ideas like there is now.
