Circles, Circles, Circles-lots of Circles!

Hello all my crafty friends, I hope that you all have had a fabulous weekend!  Now it's time to get down to business,  we are having an inspirational Monday here at BBTB2! lol  We  used the die cut of a circle from any cart as our inspiration on any project.  Well that had me thinking what I wanted to do.  There are so many things that can be made with a circle, but I finally decided to make the ornament (I guess it is an ornament, lol) in the Artiste book on page 57.  You cut 20 circles and then score them and start assembling.  I used some beads hanging below the ornament on some simple hemp twine and then threaded it up throw the top to make a loop for my hanger.  This little ornament is simple to make and would be cute on a tree with many of them in different papers. I didn't dress mine up much, but you could if you wanted too.   I went with the recommended size of 1" and I like the size of the finished ornament. I'm telling you if you don't own this cart, you need to go and buy it!  It's such as fabulous cart! So I hope you enjoy the inspirations on using circles on a project.  Sorry but there is no challenge opportunity this week just inspiration from our fabulous Design Team.
