The Perfect Petal

I recently attended a Stampin' Up! Regional seminar in Orlando.  Besides spending the day with hundreds of other demonstrators, we spent hours learning new tricks and techniques.  Two of my favorite "tricks" included creating the perfect petal from our circle punches and a cute and simple flower from our scalloped circle punch.  Check this out:

Start by punching out a scalloped circle:

Punch

With paper snips, cut from the edge of the scalloped edge to the center to form a "flower"

Cut

Take a circle punch (any size will do - it just depends on the size petal you are wanting).  I used the 1 1/4" circle punch for my 3x3 gift card.

Circle

Once you punch a circle, reinsert the punched circle into the 1 1/4" punch (this is where the fun part comes in!)

Do you see it?  Isn't that cool?  To form the other petal, simply reinsert the remaining part of the circle and punch again. 

It should look like this:Two_petal

Now it's time to assemble the flower.

Add a little "bling" in the center of the flower by adding some Dazzling Diamonds

Assemble your card and get ready for the "ooh's and ahh's"
