Technique Time with Kate
Hi everyone! I just want to share this neat technique where you can make a very cool 3D page element with just some patterned paper, a circle punch and some folding.
Here is a close up of the 3D circle/squares.
How to make your own
Punch out some circles from a double sided patterned paper with any circle punch (1", 1.5" or 2" look the nicest), I used 12 circles.
Now you will need to create a square template for your fold lines. You will only need 1 square.
For 1" circles, cut out a square that's about 0.7".
For 1.5" circles, cut out a square that's about 1".
For 2" circles, cut out a square that's about 1.4".
Place the square on top of one of the circles so that the sqare is centred inside of the circle.
Fold the circle along the edges of the square (fold along the red dotted lines in the image below).
Fold those edges toward the centre of the circle. Your cirlce should now be a square (I hope that makes sense!).
Repeat on the remaining circles.
Arrange in neat rows as shown on my layout.
Thanks for looking! I hope that this makes sense. Feel free to ask any questions.
