For the scalloped circle, delete the inner circles and size to 1 7/8”. (If you do not have a Silhouette, refer to the above Step Card technique. For the different shapes you can use Spellbinders’ Labels Four, Scallop Circles Sm, and Standard Circles Sm.)
2. Score the red cs base at 1” from bottom on outside to line up with cuts. Score again 2” from bottom on outside. Score again 5 1/4” from the bottom on outside. Score again 4 1/4” from bottom on Center. Then Fold.
