Circle Cutter

We've just launched a new circle cutter.  It cuts up to 12" circles and doesn't leave a hole in the center.  We've been using it a lot recently here in the Crafts Dept., and it's certainly a time-saver. Take a look at these simple projects below. They add serious color and impact to any setting, and are quick to put together with a little paper, string, tape, and, of course, a circle cutter.



Want your own? Leave us a comment in 50 words or less explaining how you'll use your circle cutter, along with your name and a valid e-mail address. All comments must be received by 6 P.M. Friday, 7/30. We’ll choose one commenter at random to win a Large Circle Cutter.

See official rules here. Please be aware, comments may take time to show up on our site.

  • I would use it for birthday party decorations as well. I love banners right now, so I think that would be my first project.

  • I love making the balls made from circles folded triangularly. Use a decorative punch in the middle of each circle.. such as the a water lily punch. Leave off a couple from the bottom, and slip it over a flameless tealight...

  • Ooooh....well, first off, I have a baby shower coming up for a friend. That would make a really easy garland!!

    I have 2 craft ideas,

    1) I want to make these large paper ornament-style balls (similar to the one shown in the third photo but a different variation) with some of my fave 12 X 12 scrapbook papers to hang in my younger daugher's room in lieu of the currently popular tissue pom poms. But my die-cut machine only cuts up to 8 inches in diameter. 12 inches is what I really want for scale!

    2) A paper circle garland for my older daughter's room. I think I could do this way faster than running paper through my die-cut machine.

  • i have wanted one of these for as long as i can remember. being able to cut a circle without finding a round object in the house to trace (plate, roll of tape, vinyl record, etc.) would be AMAZING!!!

  • This would definitely come in handy when making decorations for my housewarming party in August!

  • My head is swarming with idea for this beauty! Banners, name place cards, a polka dot themed party?! The possibilities are endless.

  • I do not, at the present time, have a circle cutter. I make a lot of greeting cards and special event cards.

  • What an excellent invention. If only I had thought of it!

    I would use this tool to cut circular pieces for quilt blocks. Not to mention, it would be great for cutting pieces for game boards to use in my classroom. Many possibilities.

  • I love to do things with the yoyo, just like Martha did on the sheet set. One of my lastest project is my daughter's apron (flower yoyos) for her waitress job. I had several projects in the past and I used a string and a marker. This would be a great improvement from my caveman technique.

Are these in the retail stores yet? I would love to have this tool. I just recently bought Martha's edge punch that makes the doily lace pattern and a snowflake punch. I love them both because they are so easy to use. I can't wait to see what you guys come up with next!

It would definitely come in handy for our unit on finding the equations of circles for my Algebra 2 students, while my lower level students could use them for pie graphs while learning about percents. (Right now I'm still struggling with cutting out uneven, jagged circles for both of those units!)

  • Wow. This would be great for when I am making ornaments. I have such a hard time cutting out a perfect circle. I can needlepoint a circle onto canvas, but cutting it all out later just eludes me.

    Thank you for the opportunity for the giveaway!

  • Placemats, centerpieces, vinyl polka dots on the wall, Christmas cards, appetizer decor, coaster decor - your imagination sets the boundaries. This is a staple piece to have in any craft room and it would be wonderful to at it to my own. As the resident crafter, my friends and family would love all of the cute projects we could do to add our personal touch to any and every function.

  • I would like to have a poke-a-dot party. Circles and dots decorations. Fun!

  • I would use the circle cutter to make decorations for my friend's wedding shower and also fun projects at home! FUN STUFF!

  • I teach special needs children, and we do an art project daily. I would enjoy having this cutter so that I don't have to cut out circles imperfectly by hand. I love all of your products-thanks so much!!!

  • I would use it to make decorations for my nephew's first birthday coming up! Red and blue polka dots everywhere.. :)

  • I am in love with this circle cutter! The one thing I can't stand is crooked circles. I will definitely use this for circle banners and garlands. This cutter will make it easy-peasy! :)

  • How cool! I'd use this for tons of art projects with my son. He'll love it too!

  • I would love this to add to my crafting tools! I'm starting to gather tools for card making and am LOVING all of the punches etc. on Martha Stewart. I could make garlands, add to my card making, all the papers I have. OH, it's ENDLESS possibilities!

  • I would use the circle cutter for my scrapbooking projects. I love the fact that it doesn't leave a hole in the center because I wouldn't want a hole in the center of my pictures.

  • Wouldn't circles cut from cardstock make a fun and interesting scrapbook? That would be my first project.

  • I am an avid scrapbooker and lover of all things crafty (except sewing, haven't learned how to turn on the machine yet). I have two young daughters who i am hoping to successfully "mold" into my crafting companions. My oldest, who is 4, frequently asks to "do a scrapbook project" with me already so i think maybe my brainwashing is working. We would LOVE a circle cutter that is easy to use, as many of the others i have tried don't live up to their claims.If it is as good as Marth's punches, then i have a feeling it will be the last one i need!

  • We're helping a friend plan a wedding!

  • I host regular craft nights with my friends and this would be perfect to use when we're making cards or other crafts.

  • I am trying to put together our nursery and don't want to go with a "theme"...I found some great fabrics, but need something colorful to spruce up the room. With the circle cutter, I think I could make a beautiful room-size mobile that baby would love!!

  • I'd love to have a circle cutter that would work this well, especially without the hole in the center. For 50 years I've had circles with a patched hole in the center. Please pick me for the free one!

  • Oh boy would this been fun to play with. thanks

  • What an amazing tool! I do alot of scrapbooking, and this would come in very handy. My daughter is also very crafty, and I know she would find all kinds of uses for this! I can definately say that this tool is going to be one of my must haves for crafting. Thanks for the awesome website.

  • This would be great for all of my last minute projects I try to throw together. I'd love to try it for party decorations, banners, cards, and a mobile for the nursery

  • I have long claimed the Creative Memories circle cutting system as the best on the market, but this looks like it could be a viable competitor. I would love to have one to test this theory!

  • I would love the new circle cutter. It would be great to use for crafts and decorations with my Sunday School kids. I can already picture Christmas ornaments made out of various sized circles.

  • I’m a Girl Scout leader, cutting out circles is a never ending job. I believe sharing new tools is a great way to introduce girls to lifelong skills. As a bonus my son starts kindergarten this fall and I'm sure his teacher will love some help getting her circles cut too!

  • As a high school teacher, I would use the cutter in my Apparel 1 & 2, and my Early Childhood Education 1 & 2 classes. Many of our sewing projects use various sizes of circles. In ECE classes the circles would be used for games, bulletin boards, etc.

  • I would make cute sucker cards for a birhtday party my sister is planning!

  • Three different sized circles could make cute snowmen decorations this winter, and also, I would use a larger circle to place under cakes for some extra color!

    Creative card making snappy.

    The final step is picture taking.

  • What a lovely gift to give away. Since I have nine grand children and sixteen
    great grand children, there are all sorts of projects to use the circle cutter on.
    Birthday banners and decorations, wedding decorations, school projects,
    holiday decorations and garage sales. Also I think all of the planets be great.

  • I would use it to make cards and for scrapbooking.

  • I like decorating the room of those in Nursing Centers. Recently my grandaughter and I decorated for our 97-year-old friend who is in a nearby Rehabilitation Center. Using this CIRCLE cutter would definitely take decorating her room to a new level and make it quicker too. Oh yeh, let's get started with the ideas!

  • First I'd use it for cutting fabric for a quilt project I've got on my "to do" list. It uses a lot of yo-yos and the new circle cutter would make cutting them a very simple task. Then in scrapbooking I could use it to create all sorts of "dots"...I just love polka dots. Thanks for the chance to win.

  • I paint old world santas on wood, and I would use this for cutting round circles out of Luan (compressed wood) The circle would be used to cut plates for display or serving appetizers

  • I love circles in scrapbooking, but have had several cutters that don't work well. This looks like a great product!

  • If I had the Circle Cutter I would use it to make labels in my community garden plot; stationary to send "miss you" notes to my best friend (and love letters to my husband); garland for the Hunnukah/Christmas tree; and maybe pictures for silly gifts. Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  • How many times have I had to search for just the right size glass or plate or any thing round for a project??? Now you have made it easy! Should have known that Martha would answer my wishes!! Can't wait to get one! As a teacher, I know I will probably use it A LOT!! The ornaments in the picture above will be the first thing I make--with all the beautiful scrapbooking paper, oh, my, won't I have a good time!!

    Thanks Martha!

  • We had very little when I was growing up, but we always had a beautiful Christmas tree. The best part of it was a garland of coloured circles my mother sewed together on her sewing machine. I'd like to recreate it, using the circle cutter to cut circles from shiny paper. It'd be great!

  • I would use it to decorate my cube at work! I just started and right now its so boring.

  • We're expecting our first baby, so this circle cutter would be great for making awesome handmade thank you cards for all the gifts we've been receiving!

  • I love making cards for my friends and family. I live on a limited income so alot of the tools for card making are out of my budget. So 3/4 of my cards are improvised by what I have around the house. This circle cutting tool would be a God send.

  • i would love this circle cutter! i do all sorts of crafts... sewing , scrapbooking, jewelry making, cardmaking, etc. and could never seem to find a nice circle punch for the correct size i need. if i do, i dont seem to have the budget for purchasing them. single punches run from 10-20 dollars each. It would really help my craft hobby business alot with a quick way of making circles of any size, and I love the fact that it doesnt put a hold in the center like if you were to use a compass to draw it out! Best of luck to myself and everyone on here!

    I wanted to make fans. a big circle with a hole for the thumb close to the edge.
    this would be perfect!

I find great tools inspire me to take everyday, discarded items and turn them into one of kind arts and crafts.

  • I would put all of my pretty paper scraps to good use cutting endless amounts of circles, but I have no idea what I would make yet. I guess I'll just let those circles inspire me :)
