I love the 60’s style look of these squares and rectangles that I’ve seen on cards around the web. Not your common or garden squares either – these have one or more of the sharp corners replaced by a lovely curve making them into asymmetrical awesomeness!
I’ve made a cut file with an assortment of these – with one rounded corner, two rounded corners – some square and some rectangle.
Lots of possibilities with these shapes – great for Card embellishment, scrapbook pages, labels….well you get the idea 🙂
I managed to get my act together to make this little mini card too. It’s just 10cm (4″) square. I welded a couple of the squares together, added the centre perforation line then added a smaller square and rectangle cut out.
I decorated the card with faux stitching and simple text using my new sketch pens – They’re lots of fun but more on them later!
I learnt on Pinterest that these shapes can be made with a corner cutting punch by shaping the corners of a regular square or rectangle with the punch. So no worries if you don’t have a cutting machine….well, as long as you have a corner punch that is!!
If you do have a Cameo or Portrait Cutting Machine – here’s the Silhouette Studio cut File. Hope you can find a use for these shapes. Love to see what you do (or already have done) using rounded squares, so please leave a comment and link.
I made a Pinterest Board to show you a few other examples of these shapes in action too.
Thanks for the free file. Have it downloaded now.
These are great shapes, Pam. Much more interesting than just a regular square or rounded set of corners. A fun card too!

I love this shape! I just recently used something similar for some labels. The rounded and hard corners create such a nice visual. Thanks for the cut file!
My Pleasure Kristy. Glad you like it. I must try and do some more cards using it.
