Comments

  1. I love making cards and you just helped me realize how many times I want to cut a circle in various sizes and have used a cup or glass to get the “correct” sized circle. This is a much better idea than photocopying a template on paper that you don’t necessarily want to use as the envelope!
    It appears from the photo that the circle cutter is adjustable to various sizes. What are the sizes? I will trot off to my nearest Craft store and get one of those!
