Scallops make me think of spring!  and oh what fun it is to use Stampin’ Up!’s Scallop Edge Punch { page 184 112091 $15.95 }… but how do you get the scallops to line up so that you have perfect scallops everytime?  Here’s a few tips and tricks to help you have a lot of fun with this punch:

Scallop Edge Punch Tutorial Basics:
After watching this video… my scallops are always coming out wonderfully!  Click Here for Video!

Scalloped Squares and Rectangles:
Also if you are wanting to make scallop squares and scallop rectangles… it’s really easy… simply add 1/2″ to each side of your desired size rectangle or square and cut the rectangle/square out… then using the scalloped edge punch… punch out the scallops… for corners… I turn my scallop edge punch upside down where I can see the actual silver punch and try to match up the last scallop punched on my cardstock to the scallop punch edge… it works every time!  Now you can make scalloped squares and rectangles that are any size! With one punch!  Here’s a great website that gives you a tutorial on how to make scallop squares/rectangles with the scallop edge punch:  Click Here for Tutorial!

New! Here’s the Eyelet Border Tutorial!  Using this tutorial you can make a square or rectangle with your new Eyelet Border Punch!

Umbrella Tops/ Egg Shells:
One more idea… did you know you could make an egg shell/ or umbrella top { depending on which way you turn it } with the scallop edge punch and the 1 3/4 ” Circle Punch?  Simply punch the scallop edge and then using the circle punch, punch a half circle… the scallop edge will become the straight edge!

Ric Rac Tutorial:

Texturize Your Scallops:
When you finish punching out your scallops, run it through the Big Shot! using our new Texturz Embossing Plates… now that is really cool!

Where can I get this tool?
As you can see this punch is really versatile and fun to use… So how can you get a hold of this nifty tool?  Simply go to my Stampin’ Up! Website and click Shop!  The Scallop Edge Punch is located on page 184 of the Big Idea Book and Catalog!
