I thought I write a quick tutorial on how to use the corner punch to make a scallop border. I am sure most of you know how it works, but it’s always nice to have a visual.

1. Step one:

Take the guard off the corner punch.


1. Step one:

Take the guard off the corner punch.
Step two:

Take your border strip, face your punch upward. Line it up with the end of the paper and punch.

Step three:

Slide your punch over and line the beginning of the second scallop up with the end of the first one. Punch.


Step four:

Continue to slide your punch over until your border is finished. Easy Peasy!

  1. I didn’t know how to do that, and I SO appreciate you giving a quick, and easy tutorial! That’s cool. I love seeing how things I already own can be used differently. Thanks!

  2. Hi Beate! Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog…like i said you’re the best! So i have been doing this with the Slit punch. It looks like you get a cleaner scallop wtih the corner punch instead (that or you’re just better at it – which is probably the truth of it). Any advice on using slit over corner rounder in your experience? 🙂 B

  3. oh, fun! I’ve also been using my slit punch to make scallops. just a different look here and it will be nice to have this “look” available to me! To me, this scallop is a more formal/feminine scallop, where the other one is big and loopy and fun.
    anyway, thanks for posting the tutorial!

  4. I just bought this punch after hearing on SCS that you can use it to make scallops. Love it!! Thanks ever so much for the tutorial!

  5. Beate you are heaven sent!!! I ran across your blog and I am so glad that I did!!!!! I can’t wait to try this out! Thanks again!!

  6. OMGosh, I was just thinking about photographing a tutorial on this, too, because they showed it at Regionals this weekend! Isn’t this an awesome find? So many possibilities . . . great job, Beate!

  7. I’ve only tried scallops with the slit punch, but after seeing your wonderful tutorial…I need to try my corner rounder. Your results with this punch, look perfect!!

  8. Oh my gosh I HAVE to try this — what a great border!

  9. Thank you so much for showing pictures with your instructions!
    Some of us are very visual, and have to see it to do it 🙂

  10. Is it easy to take the guard off ?? And, is it easy to put back on?

    Thank you for your tutorial

  11. JudyOR…it’s really easy to take off. Just pull a little on the guard and the punch comes right off. It’s just as easy to put on again.

  12. Thank you for your reply. I will have to give this a try.

  17. Cool! I didn’t even know you could do that! I was wondering how everyone was doing this w/ this punch.

  18. Wow, thank you! I didn’t know that’s how you got this different look of scallop–I was wondering about this!

  24. Hi Beate~

    I am just now starting to really get involved with SCSs and one of the gazillion cards I looked at said that she had done the scallop with the corner rounder. I’ve looked high and low for a tutorial and just stumbled over it looking at another card! I’ve printed it out and can hardly wait to try it! I really need to get off the computer and do some “work”! 🙂 Thank you so very much for this. You have blessed my day!

  25. Hello Beate:
    Thanks for this visual of the scallops with the corner rounder. I was stressing and made a post on SCS and a wonderful person guided me here.
    Thanks again

  29. Oh my gosh! You just saved me $17.95 + s&h + tax. I was going to order the Marvy Oval Scalloped Punch.

    I love using the slit punch, but I wanted a larger scallop to make my Grandmother’s 90th Birthday Party scrapbook. It took me a few trys to get it perfect, but I love it.

    I am using the Larger Corner Rounder.

    Unfortunately, I broke the guard trying to figure out how to get it off. But, it was worth it.

    Thanks so much.

  55. These can be so fun to use when you are scrapbooking or just trying to make cute invitations for a party. Good post and great ideas!! Thank you for sharing.

  56. […] Can you see that scallop border at the bottom? Scallops are so, so hot now which means you could load up on a lot of different punches and shaped paper trimmers or you can just use your corner rounder punch. We learned this technique at regionals but Beates Johnson, the tutorial genius at Slitcoaststampers, also did a great tutorial on her new blog, here.  […]
