My fabulous find for school this week comes from a prior link up from Kristen (Ladybug's Teacher Files). This is why I am so glad that I am doing this linky. I've found such great ideas and items that now I can't live without either.
This is by far the best circle cutter I have found. Here's a link to it on Amazon. I've used circle cutters with scrapbooking for years. I've had several versions. This one works the best! It did take a bit of trial and error until I figured out how to make it work, so I thought I'd give you a few tips just in case you also bought it thanks to Kristen's post. Or, if you didn't already purchase it, maybe these tips will help you decide if it is right for you. If you plan on cutting a lot of circles it's worth the learning curve.
Try it out on scraps of paper first :) Seems like a no-brainer but one that I goofed on. Duh!
When you find the size you want (it cuts 1" - 6" circles), use the little hole as a guide to line everything up. Let me explain further. There are triangle shaped holes where you will put in the blade when ready to cut. I lined up that hole with the edge of the circle. Then, I would spin the plastic in the middle all the way around the circle to make sure the triangle shaped hole stayed on the edge all the way around. Make sense?
Cut slightly smaller than the edge of your circle so that you don't have a white rim.
Well, there you have it this week from me. No exciting find for my home.
Hope you can link up. This has been so fun :)
