Finding my inner Scallop Edge...punch that is!

Stampin' Up just recently came out with a new Scallop Trim Border Punch and Corner Punch, featured in the Sale-A-Bration and Occasions Mini catalogs.  Like a superhero duo, their forces combine to make squares and rectangles that are completely surrounded by a scallop edge!

I took one look at them in the catalogs, squealed with delight, and just had to buy them!  I busted them out as soon as they came and then thought "Oh crap.  How am I going to figure out what size squares and rectangles make the scallops align perfectly?".  The thought crossed my mind to do the old guess and check, but that would require a huge waste of paper and probably an equally huge glass of  So being the savvy searcher that I am...I Googled it.   (When in doubt, Google it out!)  Low and behold, I found a woman with the patience of a saint!  She toiled until she figured out the exact measurements for each square and rectangle.  So now I share with you the work of Gretchen Barron.  My hat goes off to you Gretchen!

My edges will no longer remain straight. :)
