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.  


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 appox 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).

Here is a sneak peek upclose pic of a card that I will be featuring on my blog tomorrow at 9:30 am EST that shows the scalloping:

    I have another little tip that would make this technique even easier & quicker. Punch out a circle with the 1-3/8″ circle punch first, then turn the scallop circle punch over & punch, lining it up so you have a little “frame” (with the circle already cut out of the middle) then you’ll already have the middle cut out & you won’t have to cut it out with scissors. Then all you have to do is snip one side & bend it so it lays straight. I hope this makes sense. I love punches!

  21. Deb K. Says:

    You amaze us all again, MJ. I’d ask if you’re up late at night thinking up all this stuff but I know the answer to that. *wink*

    Can’t wait to try this!

  22. MJ you are a genius!!!

    Thanks for sharing it.
