Step 4: To create the ship wheel:

  • Using the Circle Cutter, set at 8″ and cut a piece from the cool taupe lines paper.
  • Align the large Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern on top of this circle and use the Green Blade on the outside edge to cut a circle. 
  • Cut four pieces of paper to measure 1/2″ x 12″. Use the 2-Way Corner Rounder to round all of the corners. 
  • Lay the strips on the 13×13 Custom Cutting System Mat, using the lines on the mat to align/angle the strips.
  • Place the circle on top of it.
  • Using the inside edge of the large Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern with the Blue Blade, cut a piece of the same paper as the previous pieces.
  • Using the inside edge of the medium Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern with the Red Blade, cut a piece of rust red wash tonal paper. Adhere to the previous circle. Adhere this layered circle to the middle of the wheel.
