How to Make a Simple Scallop Flower

This sweet little scallop circle is quick to create and easily coordinates with any paper crafting project.  Simply switch out your cardstock color and ink to make it match whatever you need it for.

Use more scallops for a fuller, more "carnation-like" flower.

Punch three to five scallops with a scallop punch or cut them out on the Cricut.  Sponge around the edges with a color that coordinates with your project.  I have sponge daubers for all of my CTMH ink colors.

Stack the scallops and pierce in the middle with a piercing tool.

Spritz each scallop (on both sides) with a little water or stamp cleaner.  I prefer stamp cleaner.  When dry, the flower smells really nice and is stiff, too.

Secure the dampened pieces with a brad.  Then, beginning with the top scallop, scrunch the scallop (while wet) to crumple it up and around the brad.  Repeat with each layer.

The result is eye-catching.

Here's an example of the flower on a finished card.  To learn how to make a Flap Fold Card, click here.
