Thrifty Thursday Scrapbook Tip: Circle Punch for Scallop Border

I'm still working on baby cards and decided that I wanted a larger scallop border for the bottom of the card.  I don't have one, so I needed to get creative again.  This one is my first attempt with a circle punch.

I used a 1 1/2" circle punch and cut the circles in half and then adhered them to the bottom of my base. Then I attached the other layers.

 I used dimensionals under the window punch for the "hanging" pieces on the right.
The bear needed a bow if the window punches were going to have them.

Here is a closer look at the punches creating the border.  I overlapped them slightly.  I'll be trying other puncehs later this weekend.  I'm thinking a 3/4" or even the flower circle punch will work as well.  I'll show you what I come up with!

Here is another view of the card.

I started with a base of Close to Cocoa, then the border in More Mustard, Bashful Blue, and Certainly Celery.  The stamping is done on Very Vanilla with Basic Brown ink.  I don't remember where I got the pattern paper. 

Thanks for looking!


  1. I love the 3 strips of paper with the ribbons and brads! Really cute card.
