Circle Cutter Tip

I love the new Circle Cutter in the Spring/Summer Idea Book and Catalog.  The size options make it perfect for all types of projects.  But I was having a very hard time seeing the measurement in inches.  (I could read the centimeters – but that just doesn’t translate for me!)  So here’s my solution –

I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ and adhered it with Snail to the underside of the measurements.

This doesn’t obstruct the view of the paper and I can now cut in inches instead of having to call one of my sweet Canadian friends to translate the measurements!  (I also do the same thing with the labels on my stamp boxes – cut 7/8″ x the width of the box!)  Hope this helps someone out there!  Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran
