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.

This is awesome and so simple now that I know what is supposed to be done. I just knew there had to be another way to make those great scallops without having a punch for every size and shape. Thanks for sharing

Your idea is great! I have been trying for months to figure out how to use that corner rounder to make scallops.

Thanks sooooooo much for this demo!! I love scallops and often wondered how everyone got such great borders. Do you know if this punch works with the All Scallops set??

Thankyou so much for this great tip. I had no idea the guide came off the punch. Now I don't have to spend all that money on a scallop punch. thanks again... Pat...

What a great tip - thanks! I tried it on large oval shapes I cut with my Creative Memories templates and it looks great with in that shape too!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I have looked and looked at cards that have the scalloped edges and do not want to spend that much to buy the different punches. I just went and tried this and it works beautifully! Thank you again!

Can any one tell me what brand of corner rounders have the guide that is removable? I have several Fiskars and one Marvy punch. The Fiskars have a separate piece but I cannot pull them off. I don't want to force it and break it, if it is not supposed to be removable.

The corner rounder shown is from Stampin' Up!. EK Success is the manufacturer.

Thank you I thought there was a way to do this. I was in SU class and we did a card but she showed us with the new SU punch and was'nt ready to buy that . This Splitcoaster is great website

I always thought that when these large scalloped cicles were used that stampers had one of the die cutting machines!!!!!!!!
So it's great to be shown otherwise.
Hadn't bought this punch yet, but will now be on my next order, thankyou for sharing.

I'm new to stamping so don't have all the fancy tools yet. What is the brand of the corner rounder you use in this scallop tutorial? I've seen these punches around and want to get some. They look less cumbersome than others I've seen. Thanks for the info. Ginny

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! Now I don't have to buy a scalloping punch!

hi, i´m overwhelmed how to use this punch. what size of corner punch did you use? mine seems to be pretty to large, because it doesn´t fit with any circle i´ve made.
can you help me? thanks a lot

Hi Beate,

Thanks so much for this and all your tutorials! You're awesome and I learn so much!! Question on this circle scallop technique: To end up with an even number of scallops, what size circle do you need to use?
