Crafting 101 - FOUR CIRCLE CARD

Today's DIY is great for upcoming seasonal holiday cards as well as invitations or announcements .

I love unique shapes and designs for card-making so seeing this tutorial on E-How made it really easy to design something creative.

1. Start with four circles of even size. Use a circle punch or circle cutter to cut your circles. Make two circles of each color/design. Two dark and two light circles look great together

2. Fold each circle in half, then unfold. Make the creases sharp

3. Arrange the circles so they are overlapping, with the creases from the middle of the circles lined up in a square shape. Arrange them so the colors/designs are alternating.

4. Glue together the overlapping areas
5. Glue a square of cardstock in the center of the inside of the card, if you wish. Add a greeting or decorate the square.
6. Fold circles along creases, folding down in circular order. Enjoy this DIY and show me your pics!

Thanks! Such a helpful idea. Maybe some of this card stock and pretty paper will be put to good use ... I have a pretty paper fetish and I hate to part with my collection!

My dream is to open a fine stationery and paper store with vintage collectibles and knick knacks on the side... If only dreams come true! xoxo
