DIY: Easy Circle Cutter Bunting

Helloooo everyone! :) Thank you for all your lovely feedback in the last posts! :)
For those of you who haven't read it, yet, Tchibo sent me a package with craft tools and art supplies to test them and to report about my experiences. :) Here's what used the circle cutter for, it's the second item I tried out.
This cutter is very easy to handle and I always wanted to have such a thing, so it was my favourite item when I opened the package. :) You simply have to put it onto the paper (there's a grip to hold it and to press it down) and then you can adjust the circle's size and turn the cutter around its own central axis. The blade is super sharp and a second one is included in the prize. I love cutting out circles, I could have done this all day. :D
As you can see, I simply used the cutter to create home decor. I produced lots of circles in two different sizes, then I used my sewing machine to sew a paper festoon. I made two of them, one for the kitchen (it perfectly matches my decor) and one for the balcony to add a bit more color. There it matches my felt pinwheels. :)
I love projects that are as simple as this one and add color to your everyday life! How about you? :)
I'm still thinking of other projects I can use this cutter for, maybe I'm gonna make circular leaflets to promote my little business or I'm gonna cut out circles out of pretty magazines to use them to embellish greeting cards... We'll see... :)
Wish you a lovely evening!
