My first trick is to use a corner rounder. Many of us have used this little gizmo to create a straight line of scallops but I only recently thought to try it on a circle.
1. Start with a circle and corner rounder.
3. Trim as needed. Mine didn't exactly line up so I just used scissors to join the scallops.
4. That's it!
Another way is to use those good old decorative scissors. We all already know how to use them, but here is a tip you might not have tried before.
1. Trace a circle on the back of your paper.
2. Line up the bottom of your scissors with the circle as you cut.
The last trick I want to share with you is super easy and I've used it many times. It's to use a bunch of small circles behind a larger one to create the scalloped look. I cut these circles in half before adhering them to the back of my paper.
Here's how it looks from the front:
I hope you can use one of these tips to create this look on your pages, crafts and cards. We'd love to see your creations using any of these ideas. Have a wonderful and scrappy day!
