Punches, Core'dinations, Nestabilities, Dew Drops, Petaloo

The Four Cards were created with Paper Shapers Graceful Heart, Basket Weave, Bubbles & Victorian Lace Punches. Core'dinations Papers, Justrite Stamper, Petaloo Flowers, Dew Drops, Cuttlebug Embossing Folders....

Chocolate Core'dinations, Gracefull Heart Punch & Dew Drops in Sunflower

Basket Weave Punch, Petaloo Flowers, Justrite stamper

Chocolate Core'dinations, Petaloo Cupcake Faux Leather Flowers

Bubbles Punch, Core'dinations, Cuttlebug, Icicle Sticles, Petaloo Jolly Christmas florettes

Take the Two Largest Nestabilities Standard Circles Large. Here is just a photo of most of what I used to create the 4 cards!

Use the largest Circle for the Basketweave, Victorian Lace and Graceful Heart Punches
Cut a Template and as many circles out that you want to punch

Use the next to the largest Circle for the Bubbles Punch and also make
one template and as many as you wish to punch

To Make your template for both circles simply fold in half one way fold in half the other way then into quarters so you have 8 equal pie shapes. I just used printer paper for mine.
Then hold your template in place with one hand on top of your cardstock and fold and copy all your lines without moving your template. Sounds difficult but its very simple
Then you have your template and your cirle....I write on my template which Punches work with it. It takes time to figure this out so I have done it for you on these 4 punches.

Then line up your punch between the lines you just drew and punch. Continue around the circle until the center falls out.
