A Step by Step LO

This is a great Lo for using up scraps
You will need
1 piece of cardstock
3 pieces of P/P
foam dots or foam tape
( used for the flower)
ruler and pencil
and double sided tape
Flower punches to create the flower that Kathie did a tutorial on earlier in the week
(you can find that post further down the blog)
if you don't have punches to create the flower you can make the lolly pop flower that we made and used on last weeks step by step LO
Both look great on this LO

Step 1
cut a piece of P/P
6 and a half x 20 cm
Turn to wrong side
rule 2 lines
one 3 cm from the bottom and the other 1 and a half cm from the bottom
these 2 lines are the guide for drawing the scallops

draw scallops making a few a little longer than the others
using the 2 lines as your guide

cut along the scallops

Step 2
cut 2 more pieces of P/P
one 13 cm x 17 cm
and the other 1 and a half cm x 24 and a half cm
ink around all the edges of the P/P
place on your card stock to look like this
and stick down

Step 3
stick down your photo
and create your flower

Step 4
Draw around the scalloped edged P/P
and the piece behind the photo on the top and left hand side
draw several fine lines around the edge of the card stock over lapping some
draw a couple of little lines across the the lines around the cardstock on 3 sides

Step 5

stick down the flower you have created and add your title
(I have used left over alphas in different colours and fonts)
you can add some journaling if you wish

Your LO is now completed
