    Step 1

    Step 1: Stamp out your image onto paper/card stock, then line up inside the circle punch. I used a giraffe image where the head and top part of the neck are too long to fit inside the circle.

    Draw a faint pencil line at the edge of the circle where the image no longer fits, then cut around the image above this line.
