Make a Watermelon Accent

One thing that always makes a scrapbook page stand out is an unexpected accent. On our June issue cover layout, Lisa Storms modified a technique used to create flower accents and transformed it into a yummy watermelon embellishment.

Here’s how to make it:

1. Punch or hand-cut a center circle from watermelon-colored cardstock.

2. Adhere the circle to a piece of the same cardstock, adhering only at center. Cut a slightly larger circle around it.

3. Adhere the layered circle accent to another piece of cardstock, placing the adhesive only in the center. Trim another slightly larger circle around it.

4. Repeat steps two and three for several layers.

5. Once you have the layered look you like, distress the edges of all the circles and add punched seeds in the center.

  1. would love to know how to make the little watermelon slices on the bottom just love this book

    thanks donna

  2. The watermelon slices were made by layering three punched circles (each one slightly smaller than the one below it), then folding them in half over the string. So simple!

  3. Love this page. I’m scraplifting both watermelon embellishments for my current page. Thanks so much!
