Scallop Oval Tutorial


Awhile back, in this post actually, I introduced the 5 cards that would be projects for my New Product Stamp class.  Remember this card?

I discovered a way to wrap scallops around the wide oval shape.  In this card, I wrapped Pear Pizzazz scallops around the Happy Birthday image found in the Perfect Punches stamp set.  I shared this little technique with those who attended my class last night and now I’ll share it with you!


Step 1.  Punch a 1 3/4″circle from cardstock – you won’t be needing that circle, you just need the outline.

 Step 2.  Center new 2 3/8″scallop circle punch around circle outline and punch.

Step 3.  Stamp image and punch out with Wide Oval Punch.

Step 4.  Make a slip inbetween two scallops with scissors.

Step 5.  Cut tiny slits the entire length of scallop edge.  Make sure the cuts are tiny as you don’t want to see cut marks when all is said and done!

Step 6.  Apply adhesive where you’ve made the cut marks.  Again don’t apply adhesive too high or it will be exposed when finished.  But then again, we do have that handy little adhesive remover don’t we!

Step 7.  Start wrapping scallops around your oval.  I always start and end on one of the narrow oval turns.  When wrapping, keep the scallop edge distance from the oval the same all the way around, as much as possible.

Step 8.  When you reach your starting point, join the scallops as best you can.  This may take a bit of fiddling with the two ends or it might line up perfectly – it’s different each time.  You will have 2 extra scallops – just cut them off.

There you have it – scallops for your Wide Oval Punch!! I love it!
