Scallop Circle Flower

Here is a quick and easy tutorial
on how to make the scallop circle flower
shown in one of my calendars.

With the Scallop Circle Punch # 109043
punch out 4 scallop circles.
Then count out 6 scallops and fold.

Turn the folded scallop circle over,
and fold the two edges in toward the center
as shown below.

Isn't it a gorgeous flower! I love how it turned out.

A Gift Bag Made Easy!

Need a full 81/2 x 11 sheet of your choice of card stock.
(Here I am using whisper white.)
Score on the long side. 2'',5'',7'',10''
Turn sheet and score 2''
See image below for example.
You will need to trim off the small corner that is on the bottom. (my image is upside down)
You will want to cut each squares at the bottom
stopping at the 2'' score line.
Pick the stamp set of your choice
and stamp the out side of your bag.
(Here I am using Serene Snowflakes)
Then take your adhesive and fold together making your bag.
To get the ribbon to fit around it more perfectly, squeeze the bag together just snip out a bit on each side depending on how wide ribbon on how big the snip.
