How to make a doily

The images are pretty self explanatory but here are the steps.
  1. Trace a circle using a cup.
  2. Use large scalloped scissors to cut around the circle.
  3. Use a hole punch to punch a hole in each scallop.
  4. Punch another row above and in between the other holes.
  5. Erase circle or flip it over.
And done!

You can use this same technique in a straight line to make a lace strip like I did for the package on the left.

I just discovered your blog and I love it. I want to try to make the box from wall paper. I never knew what to do with left over wall paper, now I know. Thanks for the video.
