Easy Scallop Die Cut

 HI Friends! For along time now I have made my own scallop die cuts. Here is a quick glance at how I made the one for my recent layout.

*Cut 2 printed paper circles of the same size.
*Cut 1 circle a bit smaller. This will be the backing
* Cut the patterned paper according to the size you want. I wanted the floral to be a bit a bit larger. You can also cut it vertically!
*Adhere the paper to the base circle

* Ink the edges to give it a finished look!

 *I decided to place a ribbon across the seam ! You can any use anything to cover up the seam! Be creative!

* Adhere the ribbon with 2 sided tape, leaving a bit overhang on the sides. This will wrap around the back. 

 *Punch , Punch , Punch. You can use ANY shape! Be Creative!
 Glue circles/shapes to back, spacing them evenly. If you are off a bit.. stick a flower over it!!
 * Here is the finished product
I know this is probably a well known way to make die cuts.. but i thought I would post it anyway, as I do it all the time! It saves tons of money & makes use of supplies on hand!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I really appreciate it!
