Your Fingernails: I am a tried and true believer of using my God given assets for creating and using my fingernails to curl up already distressed edges is one of my favorite ways to dress up a page and make it more dimensional. My layout entitled 3 uses this technique on all the different layers and gives it tons of dimension.A Ruler: Another way to give the edges of your paper some distressing but having it be barely noticeable is using a 12 inch ruler and ripping your paper. Just line up the ruler on the paper and tear the paper TOWARDS YOU. This will give the remaining edge a more torn look, but if you use your fingernails to turn up the edges, it will be a very subtle distressing technique to try. One other technique I use before I distress is sewing along the edge of the paper BEFORE you use any of the above techniques. That sewing line will make sure that you don't rip deeply into your paper and kind of acts like a 'border' for the distressing as well. Just practice on some scrap paper, and soon you will be an old pro at distressing!
