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. :)
