Scallop Square #16 & #17 – Anyone for a Creme Egg box?

2012_04_Summer Mini Cards 046I totally forgot to post these at Easter….. Silly me…. as they were very popular with kids and adults alike…. And then I had to find Creme Eggs the other week…. ( as the originals had been eaten !! Don’t know who by!!??) which was harder than first imagined….. so a big thanks to Lisa for finally spotting some in the market..

I  used Creme egg co-ordinating colours for the first one  - along with the cute Everybunny stamp set and not-Creme Egg- colours for the other – along with the “old” Sale A Bration stamp set Fresh Vintage and the Postage Stamp Punch.

The Scallop Square die cut is just a regular 9 scallop square one for the box top and bottom on the Everybunny one. Just scored in 3 scallops from each side. 2012_07 220

But spot the shorter lid and the little scalloped base on the Postage Stamp one… yes – these are also done using the Scallop Square die…. Another double-cut trick here.

1. Again cut card to one scallop larger than you require and at 1/2” per scallop  – so for this finished 4 scallop square base  - cut a 2 1/2” square to cover 5 scallops….. or a 4” square to cover 8 scallops for the 7 scallop lid piece.

2. Place the cut card piece over a corner of the die so that 5 scallops (or 8 for lid) are covered in each direction.

3. Die cut

4 Pick up your card piece, turn so that the scalloped edges are within your die and place 4 scallops (or 7 for lid) in on the 2 corner sides ( with the end scallops nicely lined up within the cutting edge of the die …)

5. Die cut.  Finished!! 

And here are some photos to show what all those words actually mean for the 4 scallop base – on the die so to speak!!

And for the shorter ( 7 scallop) lid – score in 3 scallops from 2 opposing sides and then  2 scallops in on the other 2 opposing sides….. The base is the regular 9 scallop die cut – scored 3 scallops in from each side.
