Scallop badges – Silhouette America Blog

Scallop badges

Hi, and welcome to your next shape challenge! This week’s shape is scallop badges from Sophie Gallo designs. In my shape library, it is filed under ‘basic shapes’ which is one of my go-to’s as a jumping off point for most projects. It is simple, and not theme specific, so it just works well combined with other shapes.
I used one of the badges to create my summer bucket list…
I printed something fun I want to do or accomplish this summer on each one and added a small hole at the top to keep them together on the jump ring.

After I’ve completed something on my list, I’ll take it off the ring, add a bit of twin to the top and  use it as a tag in my scrapbook. {cute, right?!} One down… and a whole summer full of things to go!

In honor of school getting out {Summer’s here! Wahoo!}, Jen decided to make a fun little curtain to hang in her daughter’s doorway.  When she wakes up Saturday, she will have a bright and cheery reminder that it’s the first day of Summer Vacation!

  1. Thanks for the fun challenges!! Excited to be last week’s Winner!!

  2. I love the bucket list to scrapbook idea! So creative! Also, thank you guys at Silhouette for all the giveaways this week…I’m crossing my fingers I win!!!

    -I was sent from That’s What She Said 🙂

  3. Love the (script) font used on the bucket list. What is it called?

    1. I love that one too! It’s called Learning Curve.

  4. YEA Ashley!!!

  5. Love the summer garland/curtain! That’s What Che said sent me(;

  6. that garland is AMAZING!!! That’s What Che Said sent me to specifically say thanks for the give away.

    THanks also for all the giveaways this week is so exciting!!!

  7. Hi- thanks for the great ideas! I am new to the Cameo and have a basic question and I’m wondering if someone could help? please! I purchased a “scallop circle” for a graduation centerpiece project, however when I cut it cuts as a “frame” (scalloped on inside and outside) I would like it to be a solid circle (like yours above!) Is there a way to “fill-in” the circle so it only cuts the outside border? This seems simple but I’m new at this! I don’t want to dig out the old Cricut!
    THANKS SO MUCH!

    1. Hi Sarah,

      Try ungrouping the shape with either a right click then ungroup, or by selecting the ungroup icon in the bottom left corner in Silhouette studio. If ungroup doesn’t work, it may be a compound path, so you’ll want to open the modify window and select ‘release’ under compound path and delete the inside scallop.

      Hope this helps 🙂

    2. THANK YOU, THANK YOU! The “modify and release” suggestion worked! There is so much to learn…but fun!
      I will make sure to check this blog out often!

    3. You are welcome! Glad it worked for ya! 🙂

  8. Q for you…how did you get the printed sayings on the shapes? I know how to cut the shapes using my Cameo but I would know how to print on the shapes once they were cut.

    1. I would not know how to print on the shapes after they were cut is what I meant to say.

    2. Jeana: How do you print white? It seems like that would be more of a sketch pen job than a printer job.

    3. Hi Michelle,

      I had filled the shapes with color, added the text etc. then printed them out. So, the white you are seeing is just the paper it was printed on. 🙂

  9. The summer bucket list is so cute. That’s What Che Said sent me and I would like to thank you for the giveaway.

  10. I am leaving some comment love! That’s What Che Said sent me and thank you for the giveaway!

  11. I came over from That’s What Che Said. Thanks for the giveaway!

  12. I was going to ask about the font too …. I already have learning curve but haven’t used it ! love it . Are the capitals that font too ?

    1. I’m wondering the same thing! I think Jeana gets asked all the time which fonts she’s used…maybe we could get her to just list them with the shapes she uses?? hint-hint! 😉

    2. The caps letters are Ostrich Sans. 🙂

  13. Adorable…what kid wouldn’t love to wake up to this!

  17. Wow, wonderful projects 🙂

  18. That’s What Che Said sent you and thank them for the giveaway

  19. I love both of your projects. Would you tell me what materials were used to make the curtain?

    1. Dawn – I used Cardstock and vellum. That’s it! I simply sewed the shapes together on the sewing machine, stacking a few together and then fanning them out for more dimension. Hope that helps!

  20. Love the mobile!

  21. I initially came to say thank you very much for having amazing giveaways, but then saw your fascinating projects you do with the Silhouette. I am in wonder and admiration. Thank you also to That’s What Che Said who sent me!

  25. how do you print in white?

    1. Hi Shelly,

      I had filled the shapes with color, added the text etc. then printed them out. So, the white you are seeing is the paper it was printed on. 🙂
