How to Make a Cute Circle Card

The Math person in me wants to call this C^3 (c- cubed) but I will resist!

This card is great for Thank yous, Birthdays, Notes... anything!

Here is what you need to make this cute card:

Materials:
strip of Decortive paper
cut out circle (mine is from Yours Truly from Archiver's but you could trace and cut out one or use a circle cutter too)
score tool (I use a skewer stick and a ruler)
Hole punch
Scissors
Pencil
Ribbon
Embellishments (I am using paper flowers)




1.Turn your strip of paper upside down and place your circle on top where you want it to cover



2. Trace around the edge of the circle and cut out, turn over and place on top of the circle



3. Now we are going to score the top paper so that it opens nicely. I use a ruler and a skewer. I place the ruler where I want the fold and run the skewer (pointy side down) along the edge of the ruler for a straight line. If you have something better than that- use that! Make sure you leave enough room to punch the holes on the other side of the fold!



4. Make sure your paper is lined up on your circle and punch 2 holes though both layers



5. tie a ribbon through the holes to attach the paper


6. Add any embellishments and writing that you would like to the card, or you can leave it plain too!

I hope you enjoy making this cute circle card!!
