Circle Cutter-

Punch 903

It’s raining outside but I am dry

This is Colleeen with my first project. I used the circle cutter to cut my circle and then used the 903 punch to go around the the circle.  Then I folded the circle in half and then folded it in half the other way and just kept folding until I had 8 folds. I glued toothpicks in each of the folds and then put a bead on the end.  The center are 2 toothpicks glued together to make the handle longer.  When I make this again, I would use white florist tape to wrap the handle.  Also, at the very top of the handle I rolled a strip of paper around the top so that it didnt slide out.  The size for this is up to you, mine is a 1/4 wide.  Then I just added bows to finish it off.  You could use color toothpicks instead of the natural ones and have an entirely different look.  I love this circle cutter, it is just an awesome and easy tool to use. If you have never tried it I suggest  you give it a chance.
