    I am so NOT a DIYer! But, I am trying to be....question. How do I cut a perfect circle for my fan tags? I saw some kinda circle cutting machine thingy at Michael's (that was kinda expensive.....$30 and I will only use it once). But, my question is..do I put the paper I am cutting in cardboard or something?

    How does it work?
    Do I need something else instead.

    I am so lame.

      Hi Martha! I don't know how big your circle needs to be, but Fiskars makes a circle punch that is really great and only about $10. I think that the XL size is 2 inches in diameter, and the smaller ones go down in 1/2 inch increments. It's a squeeze punch so it's really easy on your hands. I know Michaels carries some of them, and you can also order them from Joann.com or fiskarscrafts.com. The best part is the way they've done it is that it cuts up rather than down like an old fashioned single hole punch, so you can see right where you're cutting.
