Cutting Fabric with the Kreaxions Circle Cutter

Today I'm going to sharing a  tutorial over at the Kreaxions Blog for creating fabric yo-yo's using the Kreaxions Circle Cutter. Normally fabric would be a bit difficult to cut, but I have a little trick to add some temporary stability to it. 

Step 1: Ink fabric with Distress Inks. Wipe off extra. 

Step 2: In order to cut fabric with the Circle Cutter you
need to give it some stability. Using a glue stick,adhere
 fabric to scrap paper. I just use cheap copy paper from
 my recycling bin. 

Step 3: Cut circle from fabric/paper using the
 Kreaxion Circle Cutter

Step 4:    Peel away the scrap paper. The glue
stick provides a temporary adhesion and the
fabric will peel off the paper easily. 

Step 5: Press down edges with your fingers and 
add   a running  stitch around the  fabric circle.

Step 6: When you have completely stitched
 around the fabric circle,     carefully pull the
thread to create the yo-yo.

Step 7: Embellish with a button or gem.

And here is the finished yo-yo embellished with a
button  and  added  to the front of a tag.      A bit of
stitching  and  a  few paper leaves and you have  a
handmade  flower  embellishement.
