Cut the 2 circles in half. Be mindful of which way you cut them if they have a pattern that needs to be upright.

    I don’t have a die cutter so I thought that I couldn’t do this but I’ll bet I could if I fooled around with some scrap paper and my round biscuit cutters or a glass or a plastic lid. I have plenty of scrap paper so I don’t waste my good paper and I can keep them as templates. I have scissors that make that trim around the circle and while I don’t have a bone folder, I have sharp fingernails and other things that can be used instead of a bone folder. Oh my gosh, maybe I can make this! When I have time I might try making this. If I actually do it, I’ll send you what it looks like. I have so many stamps that are and aren’t yours that I can use in this that my juices are flowing. I want to make this!
