Ice Cream Scoops...a convention 08 special...

When Lynda posted her kodak gallery with the sample boards from convention, there was this ADORABLE ice cream cone. Well, I just HAD to figure out how to do those scoops. So I did some playing around this morning. We may find out later that there is an easier/better/different way to do these, but this is what I figured out...

First you punch out a piece of post-it with the glue, or, as I did, a piece of cardstock circle. Use the 1-3/8 inch punch and put some removable double-stick tape on the back. Make sure it is removable tape!!!

Then put that circle on a piece of cardstock for your ice cream scoop.

Punch with the scallop circle punch. Make sure your circle is centered in the punch. (I apologize for the blurry picture here, but I think you get the idea)

Here is where a steady hand is needed. Your scallop punch has 14 scallops. You want to cut 7 of them off, following the outside edge of the circle. You'll need to cut in from the edge, between two scallops, then cut along the edge of the circle until you have removed the 7 scallops, then back out to the edge.



Voila! An ice cream scoop!

Make three of these, decorate them with versamarked polkadots and stack them up on top of a cone, or in a dish, or as scoops on some banana, add a cherry or two...
How do you like your ice cream?
