This vintage flower was so easy to make using the “new” scallop trim border punch! The scallop trim border punch can be found in your Sale-a-bration catalog. With a $50 purchase before shipping and tax you can earn this punch for FREE!!!
First, I cut one very vanilla strip at 1 1/4″ x 11″ and another at 1″ x 11″. I used the Friendly Words wheel, the Jumbo handle and a soft suede classic ink pad to roll out the friendly words over the strips. Using a sponge dab them with soft suede to give them that worn, vintage feel.
Now punch one long edge down both of your strips using your “new” scallop edge border punch. Run them through a crimper several times. You want them a bit worn down.
Take one end of your strip and stick it down towards the end of your circle. Begin working your way all the way around by just folding the paper in as you go. You will then take the smaller strip and do the same thing but start more towards the center. Once you finish your flower take a glue dot and put it in the center. I punched a 3/4″ circle and dabbed it with soft suede for texture. If you’d like to take some hemp twine and make a bow in the middle of your flower.
It’s super easy and is absolutely beautiful when finished! Enjoy.
