Default Scallop Edges?

Hello ladies! Just wondering what you use to get scallop edges. I bought a pair of Fiskars today from Michaels, but they are broken. They also don't happen to be the WIDE scallop I was really looking for. I know SU doesn't carry any scallop scissors, darn!

TIA!!

-Kristin

Ps. I'd also like to know where you got your LARGE scallop punches and what brand they are! Thanks again!!

A new rage are the Spellbinders Nestabilities Dies http://www.spellbinders.us/ct/store/...?idCategory=95

They are Dies that are nested together, so you get like 5-7 sizes in one set. They coordinate beautifully and work in all the other manufacture die cut machines.

They are fun and addicting. Hope this helps,

To make scalloped borders and not shapes (circles and squares), I was thinking about getting the Fiskars Shape Cutter

What do you ladies think of this tool?
It looks like it would cut a scalloped edge quicker than the SU punch.

Hi BrendaMontanez! I had the Fiskars Shape Cutter and hated it. Here is a link to a thread about it http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...s+shape+cutter
which has a lot of opinions.

Check out the MS punch. I think it is $14.99 at M but with 40% of coupon not bad at all. I like it because it is a little longer than most.

i really like the fiskars shape cutter! I have all the templates for it. the tricky part of it is you have to have the template facing the right way. Or else it will not cut. I went through several blades thinking they were blunt but it was the template that I had backwards. it cuts cardstock like butter!

I also like the Fiskar's shape cutter and use it all the time. I bought the cutter at Costco a couple years ago and it came with 5 or 6 templates and a CD on how to properly use them. Fiskar's web site might have the video.

Yes, IF you can find them anywhere! I manage a store and none of my suppliers have them!
