Need some sunshine? A quick tut!

Hi everyone!! And happy Tuesday to you. This may be a lame post but I have a ton of things going on here at the Wilson Compound. lol! JK...but 2 of my 6 are down with colds (Nala is getting better, Izzy is teething) and I just got an email from my BFF who is coming to the DC area on Wednesday!! Woohoo! She and her halau are dancing for the Obamas, I haven't seen her in about 6 years but she still looks the same as she did in HS. bleh.

Okay, so are you ready for some SUNSHINE?
Well here's a quick tutorial that I read about months and months ago on a blog. I am certain I wrote it down somewhere, but when you see my craft space you'll know why I can't find it. If you know the original blogger, please let me know and I will give her credit!

On to the visuals:

You'll need a piece of yellow paper and a scalloped nestie. Run it through to get this:



(Mine was Cb'd with the swiss dots folder first, sorry about that! It was a scrap that I wanted to use.) Now turn the scallops to off set the nestie. It is such a teeny tiny rotation but it looks like this:


Run it through the CB again and this is what it will come out looking like:



Now be careful! There's lots of little pieces that will fall off of it. :D
Remove from the scalloped nestie and this is what it looks like:
I apologize about the different lighting - it was a progressive attempt during the morning light. Okay, now you have sunshine! :D Have a wonderful day everyone.
*Love and Aloha*

Great idea! Thanks - I really appreciate when others can show me how to create different shapes with nesties that I already have. I think there are other ideas on GinaK, maybe. Now I don't remember where I saw that at. Hmmm...

Hope the kiddos get to feeling better quickly.

Great tutorial~I never thought about using the nesties for this. I saw something similar by Angie over on Chic n' Scratch but she uses the SU scallop punch. Here is the tutorial is anyone is interested.

But how awesome to be able to use either the nestie or punch depending on what supplies you may have to work with.
