‘Circle Scissors Plus’ from Stampin’ Up!

Published by under cards | Dec 07 2009

Hi stampers.

Today I’m sharing a simple little project made with the NEW tool available from Stampin’ Up!: the Circle Scissors Plus. With this tool you can cut out circles up to 6 inches in diameter, you can cut rings and….. it also draws circles because it comes with a marker attachment!

 It took just a little practice for me to get used to it, but it really does work well. I love how it can cut out rings to make perfect little frames for scrapbook pages and Off The Page projects. 

For best results:  
– Use with a glass cutting mat (such as the one in the Summer Mini catalogue) to prolong the life of the blades
– Use a little bit of Dotto repositionable adhesive to hold the cardstock in place.
– When cutting rings, always cut the inner circle first. Then – without moving the cardstock or circle cutter – adjust the measurements and continue cutting.
– The markers work beautifully with the this tool. Just insert the marker into the Marker Attachment, so the tip of the marker is *just* sticking out, then tighten the grip so the marker is held firm.
– Use a light touch (thanks for Steph and the other demos on the ESAD-SU forum for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators for helping me with this technique tip). If you push too firmly the cutter might slip. Easy does it.

Today’s project features a glass jar that has been lying around my house for a while, and I thought I’d try to pretty it up. In addition to using the Circle Scissors Plus to make this project, I also used the gorgeous Kaleidoscope DSP and the new butterfly punch.


Happy stamping,
