Good morning ladies! Today I have a tutorial for you on how to use the most AWESOME Kreaxions Circle Cutter, the Kreaxions Stencils and a single Kreaxions punch. Here is the finished element on my page. I'll show the full page at the end of the tutorial!
I posted this page on a couple of websites this week as all the February online crops are in full swing. The S.W.A.T. Blog posted at tutorial on how to do a ribbon rosette. It was easy and fun! But I wanted to really set it off on my page. So I pulled out the Kreaxions Circle Cutter and the Kreaxions Stencils and went to town! For this project I used Kreaxions 4-in-1 Punch #303 with NO template or positioning parts. My original circle was about 6" and I ended up with a 4" finished doily. But you can make yours smaller or larger! Just use the stencils for your guide. If you want a larger doily, use Stencil A. For smaller doilies use Stencil B. :) NOTE!!! These work better with thinner papers but with the Kreaxions Punch Mate and the proper punch (not too detailed) it will also work with cardstock and thicker papers!Here's how to create the background doily.
1. Cut a circle from your cardstock or patterned paper using the most awesome Kreaxions Circle Cutter.2. Next turn the paper over so the back side is showing and line up the center hole.
3. Using a pencil or a light pen that won’t show through your paper, GENTLY draw the lines from the stencil on the back of your circle.
This is what your piece will look like at this point...
4. Take your punch with NO template and line up the center line with the line where you want your punched edge to start. Make sure you push your punch all the way in till it touches your paper edge! You can punch part or all of your circle! Continue lining up the punch with the lines you’ve drawn and punch each time. When you’re done you’ll have two pieces – the cutaway piece can be used for another project if you’d like!
5. This is the piece you will end up with before you take away the cut away piece.
6. Take away the cut-away piece and you'll have your doily!
6. Flip it over and you have your finished product! If you wish you can cut a circle the same size as your finished doily (or even a tad bit larger) and voila you’re done! It’s easy and fun and quick! All that's left now is to personalize the decorations to fit your project!
