You can create beautiful flowers using scallop circles and they are so easy to do – you can see some of these flowers in the  Catalog on pg 123 and they pack a really dramatic punch to any project…

To make these gorgeous flowers you need a scallop circle die or punch, a pair of Paper Snips and a brad or button for the center…it really is this simple and this is how to do it…

Choose your Designer Series Paper or cardstock and take your Die or Punch…

I like to use the Scallop Circle #2 Die (pg 207) and run it through my Big Shot but you could also use the large Scallop Circle Die or Scallop Circle Punches (pg 201)…die cut or punch out two scallop circles…

Next you need to fold between each little scallop and work your way around your scallop circle until you have folded between all scallops – I find it easier and get crisper lines if I firstly use my score tool or trimmer with score blade inserted to score these lines…

Fold crisply along each line and this is what you will have…

Take a pair of very sharp paper scissors and cut along one of the lines to the center point…

Starting at one end, fold along your lines in and out to create a concertina effect…

Continue to the end and repeat the whole process with your other scallop circle – this is what you will have when you have finished both pieces…

Using strong adhesive such as Sticky Strip, attach the two parts together – insert a brad or attach a button to the center and your flower is complete…

You can use them to decorate absolutely anything and you can theme them for any season or occasion…aren’t they gorgeous?

I would love to see your creations using this gorgeous flower – if you email them to me, I will feature them on my blog…happy creating!
