Kiwi Lane Templates: Scallops, Tiny Nature, Tiny Shapes, Accents, Brackets
Here are some photos of the details:
I used my templates to "frame" my layout first- I didn't have 3 of the same shape, so I used others as place holders. It gave me a good idea of what I needed to cut and where things would be. I also (obviously) ended up changing out the background paper for something a bit lighter.
First, trace your template, leaving a little bit of the template hanging off the long edge of the paper (about 1/8") or trim off a bit after you're done cutting the border.
Once you have your lines scored, accordion fold your strip like this:
Next, tape your ends together. Don't overlap the paper. You want a continuance of the scalloped pattern, and you will lose part of a scallop if you overlap. Just use tape on the back of the paper to make a ring like this:
