Pink Blog Party: Day One: Tutorial: Pink Paper Party Badges & Giveaway

PINK PARTY PAPER BADGES (say that three times fast)

Let's KNOCK OUT Cancer! I made these super cute pink party badges for my first tutorial in
 my Cancer Awareness Pink Blog Party! Scroll down to the next post to find info on the Pink Blog Candy!
Aren't these paper badges the CUTEST? These would be awesome for awards, parties, you name it! They are also EASY peasy and FAST! Just down my alley!
Okay I ran over Youtube's alloted 10 minutes, so my hubby had to edit it and the first one was a "hot mess", so we edited it again (it's still choppy & nutty), and it's uploading right now to youtube!
****Okay video is a little (well alot) choppy from my hubby having to edit it for youtube's time allotment--bare with me*****
PS I chose the flourish I did on Accent Essentials because to me it looks like two boxing gloves in the middle--does anyone else see that???

I created a paper "rosette" by accordion folding dotted paper and gluing together, then I created a circle and scalloped circle shadow to top off the rosette. I then doodled on the top circle using my cri-kit pens, the sentiment Knock Out and the swirls using scal for the first one. On the second one, I used Accent Essentials to cut the circle and shadow. Then I used All Mixed Up to doodle the sentiment using the pink metallic cri-kit pens. Then added pink ribbon behind the rosette--and voila!

Ingredients for Paper Badge:
Scal Badge-Scal file--download here FREE
Cricut Cart Badge- I used Accent Essentials-- I used the scallop circle shadow and the circle
You can use any cricut cart that has a circle and shadow (try a sun shaped shadow, etc)

Pink paper flourish, optional (I used Bazill papers)
