Welcome to the Kiwi Lane Blog Hop! I had the great pleasure of using one their Mini Scallops template. They are great for scrapping, card making, and so many other projects. I used mine in several different ways! Kiwi Lane is giving away a $25 gift certificate to one winner. Continue to hop to all the contributors sites as well as on their blog!

Here what I created with my Mini Scallops template:
I used the template to create my own background design on kraft paper. I simply used some colored pencils and my white Signo pen and traced the template. I also created the middle part of my page (the gray part) by tracing on just one side of the patterned paper and cutting. The yellow patterned paper was also traced, cut, and then folded on the bottom part of my photo. The fabric flower was also created by tracing with the template onto dyed fabric. I handstitched the bottom edge and then gathered the fabric to create the flower. I layered some cut pieces on the top of my photo as well.
I love incorporating fabric into my designs so I decided to make by next project made with my Kiwi Lane Template completely out of fabric! Here is my scallop bunting project.
I used the largest template from the Mini Scallop set and traced and cut them out of some thick duck cloth. Next, I cut each "scallop" out into individual pieces. Using my sewing machine and some clear thread I began sewing each individual scallop, leaving a small space in between each scallop and also allowing some extra on the end to hang the banner when finished. It turned out so cute and you can never have enough bunting in your home! This would work greate for a little ones birthday or any holiday! I kept mine pretty simple but you could embellish the bunting as well.
I hope you enjoyed my projects! Hop on over to the next blog to see what the rest of the girls did with their templates! Remember to leave a comment for your chance to win!
