    I have been wanting to make this for a while now and with Chilymac's help I was encouraged to make one. I used the little twister tool that I purchased from CS designs. I'm glad I finally had the courage to make one. They really are so much fun!

    That is very pretty. Do you cut around the template with a rotary cutter, or do you draw with a pencil and then cut out with scissors?

    Now that is a good question. I thought about doing that. I guess I could have done it. I think it would have been easier., instead of twisting my body in different directions trying to cut it out with the rotary cutter. I'm sure others who have not yet made one will bw happy to know that. I will definitely try this with my next one I make.

    Here's a hint ....
    When rotary cutting around a square ..... I like to be at the end of a table. That way I can cut from 3 sides without moving the plastic square.

    I would stick with the rotary cutter ... far more accurate and a HUGE time saver over pencil and then scissors.

    Cute! I also have one of the twister templates - sitting in my closet. Where did you get the wreath pattern? Or did you create that yourself?
