Scallop Circle Punch
This is a sample sheet I made up to demonstrate what you can do with a scallop circle punch when flower making.

6-8 Scallop Circles punched out of Stampin' Up! Whisper White cardstock,
Distress edges with colour of choice - I used Melon Mambo and moisten with a mister,
Scrunch up each scallop circle then and stacked on each other
Bind stack in the centre with a brad
Circle Punch - for all shape and sizes of flowers...
Do you remember as a child tearing a Mintie wrapper to see who got the longest piece? If you had fun doing that then you will be right at home here. Punch out a circle - any size and spiral cut into the centre. Roll it up and place a small amount of blue on the inner edge to hold it all together. I pushed one of our Rhinestones in the middle to give a bit of bling ... yes am loving Rhinestones and pearls..

To create the flowers below, I simply punched out 3 different sized circles and distress each circle by rolling it in my hands. This then allowed me to separate the paper fibers and pull the circles apart. I then stacked 3 different sized circles on top of each other and added a centre - the flower punch from the Itty Bitty shapes. You may choose to add a brad, Rhinestone or pearl. I then spritzed with smooch to give a little shimmer, just like a real flower.
