Scallop Edges - how too....

I received this question today

Kathy Eddy has left a new comment on your post "How many punches can you use?": I love this card and need to know how you made the scalloped edges with your circle punches. Can you send me and email explaining it? Please!!! Kathy Eddy


I thought there might be more readers who wondered the same thing. On this particular card I used my 1/2" circle punch. My layer was 4" long so I needed 8 - 1/2" circles for each side to make my faux scallop.



Run your snail down the edge - then place on your grid paper - this will make it easier to line up your punched circles. Start placing your circles onto your snail, but leave about 1/2 the circle off the edge as shown. (I always start at the bottom and work my way up, unless my paper size and punches are odd sized - then I start in the middle and cut and extras off the edges)









Here's the finished view from the front side. To show comparison, I used the 1/2" circle on the left side and the 1" circle on the right side.







Here's another sample - but this time I used the Scallop punch and the Large Oval Punch. Experiment with your different punches, they make some great edges!
