Corner Rounder - Making Scalloped borders

by Beate Johns

Use your corner rounder to add scallops to your cardstock.


  • Corner Rounder

  • Cardstock

  • Scissors


  1. Step 1

    Carefully pull the corner guide off the corner rounder.

  2. Step 2 Straight Border

    Turn your corner rounder upside down so you can see the bottom of it. Line the edge of your cardstock up with the edge of the punch.

  3. Punch your cardstock to create your first scallop.

  4. Step 3

    Line the left end of the corner rounder up with the right end of your first scallop.

  5. Punch again to create your second scallop.

  6. Step 4

    Continue to line your corner rounder up with the last scallop and punch out more scallops until your entire edge of the cardstock is done.

  7. Step 5 - Scallops on Circles

    Turn your corner rounder upside down. Line the cardstock up straight with the edge of your corner rounder bottom.

  8. Punch your first scallop.

  9. Step 6

    Line up the edge of the corner rounder with the end of your first scallop.

  10. Punch your second scallop.

  11. Step 7

    Continue to add scallops until you can't fit anymore on your circle.
    Sometimes it doesn't just add up right.

  12. Step 8

    Use scissors to cut of the leftover piece.
    If that creates a noticable gap, place some ribbon or hardware stragetically over it when finishing your project.

Thank you so much for this demo! I've been dying to figure out how to cut scallops on a curved edge! That's fantastic! SU should do a special demo on fancy edge cutting for new demonstrators who just don't know yet!

Thank you for this tutorial.. I love the techniques that give us more options with the tools most of us have. I was just looking for scalloped scissors but will use this instead as I already have the corner rounder. This is a marvelous site for us as demonstrators just starting out. Thanks Tracy

Thanks Beate, once again you've explained a mystery to me. I've been wondering how those large circle scallops have been made. I frequently use my corner rounder on straight edges, it just never occured to me that I could do it on a circle. I so much enjoy your tutorials. They are so easy to follow and the pictures are so good. Thanks so much.

Yes, the guide snaps on really easy again. Just pull the sides of the guide apart gently and slide the punch back in.

I was stumped as to how to make the scalloped edge. Thank you so much for this amazing tip. I wasn't aware that the guide came off the corner rounder. I will be able to create some beautiful cards using this awesome technique. Thank You grin

Great idea! I've always wanted to make scalloped borders. Well, now I know how. I'll be a bit nervous taking the corner guide off, but I'll give it a try.
