question about scallops

I see so many pretty scalloped edges on pages. Just curious, do you buy pp with the scallops already cut in it, or do you have templates or cutters that do it for you? I have only bought one piece of scalloped pp before and traced many pages from it, but they were tiny scallops and I would like to get some bigger ones.

I usually cut my own from pp. I have a circle punch. I just keep on sliding it over and trace only half of the circle onto the back of my pp and then cut.

Scalloped paper is SO expensive. I do have a few sheets but can't hardly bring myself to use it because it was like $1.99/sheet LOL

I cut my edges as well, using either a template I have to trace and then cut, along with a hole punch, or with the scissors I got at Michaels that have the scalloped kind of cut.
