Hi all!! I'd thought a do a quick tutorial on how I make my distress scallop edges. There are plenty of other tutorials out there, this is how I do it!! It's really easy and leaves such an awesome look to your pages.

I use the Bazzill Scallop Cardstock as my template.

Place the template on the back of your pattern paper and trace.

Following your trace marks, cut out.

Ink the edges. I use Chalk Eye Chestnut Roan.

I usually use my Zutter to distress large edges. But since this is a tight area I use a little scraper. Just run it along the edges. You can also use scissors.

Turn your pattern paper over and ink.I always ink the back of my pattern paper when I know I may be folding over.

Mist the edges with water, Glimmer Mist or whatever kind of mist you have.

Now, just fold or pinch the edges. Heat for faster drying time.

This is what it looks like done.

When applying to your background paper make sure the scallop paper is dry. Otherwise it may warp.
