    open up and there ya go!!! Make bigger or smaller by adding or subtracting from each side after you cut it...just use your ruler and cutter...

    I always tried doing it with a square. After I saw how simple the circle was I felt silly!

    Thanks so very much--every time I see one of your table toppers (that are always so beautiful,) I wonder how you do those so beautifully--and so fast! :lol:
