    Take your rotary cutter or scissors and cut it out. If you're using scissors make sure they're very sharp before using them. If they're blunt your circle will have jagged edges.

    **Before using white spirit make sure you read the instructions on the back, it's very flammable and can be poisonous if consumed or inhaled**

    In a very well ventilated room apply a small amount of white spirit to a cotton pad and clean the shiny surface of your circle. Cleaning it removes excess dirt and dust. This will help create a better bond when gluing.

    **Remember the clean your strips before gluing**
    Cut out as many strips as you want. I like to use my pastie as a guide so i don't cut too short.
