Circle Cards

Circle cards are fairly easy to make and would probably fall into the "shaped cards" category, since, obviously, they are shaped like a circle! You just need to remember when cutting your circle card that you must not cut all the way through the folded edge or you will end up with two separate circles instead of a card. And yes... I am speaking from experience, albeit quite a few years ago.

Circle cutting tool (I used Spellbinders dies)
Various paper and embellishments for decorating

1. Fold your card blank in half and crease the fold firmly.

2. Place your cutting tool onto the folded card ensuring that some of the cutting edge actually misses part of the fold. If you don't leave in this little bit of fold you will end up with two separate pieces of cardstock and not a joined card.

3. Cut the card using your tool of choice. If you don't have a cutting tool, simply use a compass or a saucer or other round object, trace a circle on your folded card, making sure you leave some of the fold in place, then cut the circle with scissors or a craft knife.

You can see the part of the card where the circle cutter missed actually forms the card fold.

4. To give your card a completely circular front you can cut out another circle the same size and adhere it to the front of your card.

5. Decorate as desired.
