Three-panel flower card with Scalloped Tag Topper Punch



Another fun project with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch, using my favourite stamp of the moment, Hardwood. We made this card at Crafty Friday last week, although I thought the woodgrain was a little harsh so we switched to Crumb Cake.

We started with a piece of 6” wide cardstock – the depth is entirely up to you. It’s scored at 2” intervals. If you carefully feed the cardstock into the punch, you can scallop the top edge even though it’s wider than 2” – this opens up a world of possibility for this punch!


It helps if you mark your punch somehow so that you can see where the channel lies. You can do this with a permanent pen, but I’ve used washi tape as it shows up better in the photo. Using the inside edge of the washi, you can now see exactly where to feed your cardstock. 


This project could be adapted to make a great mini album – you could make it as long as you like. A 12” strip would give you six sections, but you could make more by joining your cardstock. Why not give it a try?

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
