Probably most you see are cut from a electric die cut machine, but you can also get templates and cut them yourself. Then there are also some pre-made ones in chipboard, stickers or cardstock.

You can cut them with die cutting machines, Doodle them (both with and without a template), buy them pre-made, stamp them, stitch them, etc.

I make mine with fabric paint(: Sometimes I use Cricut to cut out paper ones. I also bought some of those stamps referenced above.

Happy Scrapping!!!

I have the cricut and I also have the fiskars shape cutter to make my swirls. I want to try some of the above mentioned ways too.

I have the Storybook and the Potpourri Basket Cartridges, they have swirls on them. My Plantin Schoolbook and Walk in my Garden dont have any on them. It does depend on the cartridge. Hope this helps.
