HOW DO YOU MAKE LARGER SCALLOPS??

Okay, so you all know how much I LOVE my scallop punch, but what if you want to make larger scallops than the punch allows?


This is a card that came from a demo in the US, Mary Brown, who had a great idea for making any size scallop circle you want. By punching 1/2" circles and applying them to the back of a larger white circle, you can create the look of a scallop background in any size you wish! Obviously a lot more time intensive than our handy-dandy scallop punch, but beggars can't be choosers when you want a larger sized scallop ...Updated to add: To make your larger circle you can use any number of cutting systems (I love the Coluzzle myself) or if you don't have anything like that you can use anything that is a circle shape and draw around and cut it out (think the bottom of a drink glass). Then it's just a matter of attaching the 1/2" circles behind. (Hope that helps Trudi ...)
