I was talking to my girlfriend the other day and she was asking me how I made and got my circles of bling so perfect.

Circle By ChrisWife

I told her that I didn't make it I bought them, then I got to thinking about it, How could I make this, or at least how could I make a circle of bling. I know that they are adhired together but is there a way that I could make this either adhired together or not, or how to make this in a perfect circle with single rhinestones? I was hoping someone could help. Maybe someone out there has . If so would you mind sharing with me.

You could use a template. Just put it over your LO, use a pencil to mark where you want the bling to go, remove the template and place the bling over your penciled-in dots. Hope this helps!

That is what I thought too, but I would be scared to do it on a photo. I would be worried that I would mess up. I guess I could make a copie of the photo first.

I made a layout with a large circle of star confetti.

I drew the circle lightly with pencil, using a compass.

I measured evenly around the circle and put a small dot with pencil. I then erased the circle, keeping the dots, and glued my stars.

The right tweezers make a big difference, too. I use the long ones from Making Memories ; they open when you squeeze the handles, which gives you much more control....

On a side note- my FIL saw me use those tweezers once and just loved them (he does a lot of fly tying, machine shop stuff)! We stopped at a Michael's store while we were visiting them and bought him a pair. He didn't even mind the pretty purple color.

You know how things go flying sometimes with tweezers? Check out Embellie Gellie instead.

It picks up something as small and light as a seed bead or diecut vellum letter and something as heavy as a mini hershey bar.

Check out my blog or PM me for more info.

I usually only scrap coppies (or orginals if they were taken with a digital camera) for that reason. I would prob mess up if I had that kind of presure on messing up a photo

Hot Off The Press makes a template for this purpose called Easy Circles. It can be used on cardstock/paper 12 inches or smaller. You can make lines of various sizes or dots, all of which are spaced evenly out from the center and around in concentric circles. This makes it easy to mark perfect placement for brads, eyelets, stitching, journaling, or whatever. It's very affordable at about $6.

I have templates that I lay over the top that is just a fraction larger than I want my circle to be and then keeping the temeplate in place I my bling along the inside of the cirle and there are no lines drawn.

I usually cut out or punch out a circle of the size that I want to use and lay it my LO. I then place my bling around the cut out circle once I'm done I just remove the circle and VOILA!!
