Friendlier Friendly Flower Tutorial

I'm never sure how detailed to get in these posts....so if I'm every too murky with the details....just ask! I was told about these flower punches by a friend, so don't take any credit for this idea....but it sure is a fun one and I'm happy to share!!

1~ punch out a scalloped circle (I used SU!'s)

2~ Tape it to a piece of thin white paper. (Thin so you can punch it again) I trim close to the edges as shown so it's easier to adjust my punch for the next cut.
3~ Slide your punched shape back into the punch.
4~ Turn the punched piece just slightly so that the tips divide each scallop as shown.
5~ Punch, and you're left with this interesting looking fellow!
6~ Carefully peel apart the taped pieces...
7~ Ta-Dah!!! You have a new punched shape!! Thinking sunflowers, medals, medallions, all sorts of fun things! Note this did not fit the stamp perfectly in the last card....but I liked the look it gave anyway.

Hope this made the process clearer....my first tutorial! And aren't those little boy paws just the cutest?!

Hey that's what I need: a kid! LOL Charles is always complaining if he has to take pictures for me, so I've learned to shoot them with my left hand. Then I always look like I do things weirdly in my pics lol. I love your tips for doing this. FAB! :0)
