I want to make some of my photos into circles. I tried tracing and that did not work out too well. Do you use a tool for this and if so what kind? TIA!

I use the Creative Memories Custom Cutting system or circle punches, depending on the size of the circle I need...

I have the EK Success "Cutter Bee" system. It has so many sizes of circles but when I need one larger than 8" I turn the cutter backwards to cut around the outer rim of the largest circle. I've also used just a craft knife to do this too. And plates, etc. Instead of buying their glass matt I went to my local glass store and had them cut me a 15 x 15 square of 1/2 in glass. This only cost about $5. Just an idea...

Someone said they use their Cricut to cut the photos into circles. I just got one and I'm not quite sure where it starts cutting. Does anyone have information on that so I could try it?

Another vote for the Creative Memories circle cutters! They are awesome!!

I have not tried cutting with the Cricut, but there is a function where you set your center point and then how big around it that it cuts. I've not tried it yet.

Creative Memories Cutting System --it's excellent and worth every penny! Before I had that I used templates- traced around- then cut out with scissors.

Ok, I have to ask. For those of you who use a dinner plate, glass, round objects from home - how do you do it?

Do you outline these things and then cut out by hand with scissors? Or do you trace around them with an exacto knife?

I use a plate or glass, trace the circle, then handcut with scissors. I also have circle punches that are 3 1/2 inches across and several circle punches that are smaller than that. Love punches.
