While I was playing with my Grand Scalloped Circles I was trying to come up with some fun ways I could create elements to go on my layout.  Although this didn’t quite make it on to my page as intended, I still wanted to use it because I loved the look.

ornament 5 copy

In order to create this, I cut/embossed two of the smallest (#1) Grand Scalloped Circles and used my score pal to score between each scallop. After making a slit to the middle on on of the the lines, I folded each scallop.  I taped the two of them together to get this full.   I then Stamped a Christmas Sentiment from my Gina K. Stamps Heirloom Ornament stamp set by Nina Brackett.  I then cut it out using S4-116 Standard Circles SM.

I love making quick fun projects with my left overs!  It’s a great way to use up scraps!

Thank you so much for checking out my creations!
