Default Scallop Edge Punch

Is it possible to use the Scallop Edge Punch (or similar edge punches) on round or oval shapes just as easily as on straight edges?

Thanks

Not as easily no. It's designed to be used on a straight edge, there are punches on the market which are designed to do curves, but I'm not sure who makes them, Fiskars possibly. Someone else might have a better idea.

Thanks Hunterri!

I see Hobby Lobby has 30% off Spellbinders & I have a 40% coupon. I think I'll treat myself to the scallop circle die set! Doesn't that sound easier & more fun!?

It sounds much easier! You can cut a narrow scalloped strip and cut little notches along the straight edge which makes it possible to curve round a circle to layer behind it, but an oval is harder to do that successfully because of the more acute curves at the end. And the old-fashioned way was to punch lots of little circles and arrange them behind to look like a scalloped border. Dies are definitely quick and easy , and if you can get a good price, that's even better .

If you have a corner punch they can also be used to punch around a circle. There are several videos on You Tube showing how to do this and the technique suggested above

Just a quick note: sometime HL and Michaels only honor one coupon...either their %-off sale OR if the item is not on sale, you can use your own coupon. A little heads up because I have been confused before and gotten to the store...ugh! Have a great day shopping!

Yep, I was surprised to find that out yesterday (HL coupon). I thought it was something new. I only got the 40% off. I didn't get the scallop circles because they only had the jumbo set. Thank goodness I didn't get that $50 surprise at the checkout! ha ha.

Any way, I bought the picot edge circles. I hope I'll like them. They're a little more lacy & fancy than I wanted. I'm going to nose around the internet for some samples.

Oh, the Lacy Circles are lovely , I got them and use them a lot. I probably do use the scallops more, but I like the lacy ones.
And I smile every time I see people spelling lacy correctly. I know Spellbinders spell it lacey, but no matter what US/UK dictionaries I check that is not a standard spelling and I cannot bring myself to use it.

I have the same "problem," Sabrina (spelling).
I'm off to check out your gallery for samples!
