As you are punching the next scallop, make sure to line the corner round with the edge of the first punch and so on...does that make any sense??? I had to experiment with different kinds of sizes for ovals and circles. If you cut a circle at (I think) 3.5 and 4.5 inches using George, the scallop edges come out perfectly. I have not tried the oval shapes yet on George. I used an oval coluzzle template to create the scalloped edges (Used the 4th biggest oval on the template).

You can do the same with a slit punch (SU brand) but you would have to cut a circle or oval on the inside and slide the punch from the inside circle to make the scalloped edges rather than the outside.

Here is a link to the tutorial using a corner rounder punch: http://paperpleasing.typepad.com/my_...r_oh_my_g.html. Although she uses a circle coluzzle template for her circles.
