Circle Scallop Flower Tutorial

The circle scallop flower has fast become a favorite of mine! Have you noticed?! It is super fast and easy to make AND...it adds such wonderful dimension to projects! If you were wondering where else you may have seen this flower before, here they are in order of appearance!
It first appeared on this mini album.
This has to be one of my most favorite projects recently!
Then, last week it reappeared on this card!
and now most recently on this gift jar!
Yes...I know! The card and gift jar match!!! I just couldn't help myself!
A view from above...
Anyway... after using these flowers several times now, I figured it was about time for me to put together a little tutorial to share on how I make them!

Here is a list of the supplies I used:
  • 2" Circle Scallop Punch (mine is by Stampin Up!, but EK Success has them too and you can get them HERE)
  • Helmar 450 Quick Dry Glue and Zap Dots
  • Patterned paper of your choice
  • Large button
  • Small embellishment and/or gem for the center


Instructions:

Punch out 7 circle scallops.
Set 1 of them to the side to use as the base for your flower.

To fold the petals, take one of the circle scallops. Fold the circle scallop in half.
Then accordion fold it like this...
Here you can see what I mean better.
Repeat this for all 6 petals, making sure to fold them all the same direction.

Now you have a happy little petal family!
Apply 450 Glue liberally to the base circle scallop. Then start adhering the petals in a circular fashion to the base. This glue will dry quickly, but it will still give you time to move the petals a little if they are not lined up evenly.
Clear the runway! The petals are coming in for a landing!!!
Whew!!! All of the petals have successfully landed!!!
Now, attach the big button using the Zap Dots.
This keeps the flower from getting too smushed!
We certainly don't want to smush this beauty!!!
Last by not least...because this makes it really purty...add the embellishment of your choice!
In this case, I had cut a flower from some of the patterned paper. But you could add chipboard and/or bling! Just have fun making it purty!!!
So, there you have it! Now you know how to make my secret circle scallop flowers and I hope you have fun making some of your own to add to your projects!!!

I would LOVE IT if you would share with me what you create using this tutorial!!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed learning how to create this flower!

Happy Hugs!
