Scalloped Flower Tutorial

Thanks to an APOS friend lending me her scalloped puch I was finally able to make these flowers and ended up making a tutorial for those who want to know how to make them.What you'll need is:
  • Scallop circle punch (I used a 2")
  • Cat's Eye Chalk Ink Pad (I used chestnut roan)
  • Adhesive
  • Buttons
  • Scissors

You need to punch out two circles. I like to used two different coulors but it's up to you.

I don't really know how well you can see this but you need to make a cut at every second "dip" in the scallop. Do this until both circles are finished.

Since you made those slits in the circle you will have two "pedals" together. Take the two parts of the petal and fold them together to create the pedal. Repeat until the whole flower is done.

Now take your Cat's Eye and ink around both flowers. Since you can only really see the top flower choose which one you want on top and ink that one even more if you want

Now all that's left is to assemble them. What you want to do is glue the two parts of the flower together so that the bottom one had the petal folds facing up and the top one has the petal folds facing down.
