Fun New Scallops - FABULOUS TIPS!

Have you seen Patty's Stamping Spot blog today?

Scalloping is in, but are you getting bored with using your Corner Rounder Punch and Slit Punch. Here is a way to create smaller scalloping using Stampin’ Up! Supplies.

She has an amazing tip for making a row of scallops - although the idea originally came from MJ's Blog - give credit where credit is due!

If you've clicked on MJ's blog you'll notice she cut the jumbo circle with Paper Snips rather than punch it

SCALLOP PUNCH TUTORIAL:

STEP 1 — Supplies are just a Scallop Punch, your choice of CS, and Paper Snips. Punch out a scalloped piece.



















STEP 2 — Make a single cut (in between 2 scallops) toward the center of the piece.




















STEP 3 — Carefully start cutting along the scalloping.




















STEP 4 — Finished cut piece which you can bend to fit any shape you are looking to add some scalloping to. Cut out as many as you need. One cut piece will cover approx 4-3/4″. Adhere to your creation. I applied Snail to the back of a piece of CS and applied the scalloping that way (so the cut line I made was hidden and only scallops showing).
