How To: Hearts with a Scallop Circle

This is another How To entry.  Someone suggested this idea when I posted my border tag punch how to earlier so I thought I would work it out since Valentine's Day is just around the corner.

Do you need hearts but don't have a punch?  You can create hearts with a scallop circle!!  I used the small Stampin Up! scallop circle punch (1.75"w).  The hearts produced are about 7/8" tall.

1. Create your scallop circle with a punch, a circle nestabilities, or a die.  Measure straight across your circle with a ruler and mark the centre with  a push pin hole. 

2. Every 2 scallops cut in the V to the center.

3. Repeat till you have gone around the whole circle.  The number of hearts produced depends on the number of scallops on the circle.


  1. Okay how clever are you??!!! This is great and the timing is perfect, too! Thanks for sharing.

  2. It just goes to show that we don't need every punch on sale. Going back to the basics solves some of our storage issues.
