Create Your Own Scallop Template
By Lucy Chesna

Supplies
CM circle punches 1 ½ , 1 ¼ , 1 and ¾
CM trimmer
Scraps to punch the circles
8 ½ x 11 white cardstock or chipboard to make your template
Pencil
Ruler

Step 1: Punch out your circles from scrap of paper. You would need your CM circle punch size 1 ½, 1 ¼, 1 and ¾

Step 2: Take a 8 ½ x 11 paper and on the long way draw a straight line about. You would need to make another 4 straight lines about 2 inches apart.

Step 3: Then take on of the circles you punched and place it on the middle of the line so that half of the circle is passes the line (like a half moon). The trace the top only with your pencil and repeat till you are done across the line.


Step 4: Erase the line then cut out around the half circles


Step 5: Trim away the bottom so it can look like this

Step 6: Finished and now you can repeat the steps with the next circle punch and this is what they will look like after. You can use these templates for your layouts and cards
