I started by mapping on my Gypsy 3" circles with the 12 x 24 mat. I was able to get 21 circles cut at a time. I used the deep cut blade set at 6, Speed 2, Pressure 5. I also used multi-cut which was set to cut the image 2 times.
I chose not to use Heat 'N Bond on my project because my circles weren't going to be adhered flat to another object. Normally this product is a must so that it gives the felt stability while cutting. I cut a 12 x 24 piece of felt and laid it on the mat adhering it with blue painter's tape all the way around. It worked beautifully.
Once the circles were cut I then began to assemble my wreath. The circles were folded in half and then folded again.
A pin was placed in the corner of the felt and then pushed into the styrofoam wreath. You won't need to do the back of the wreath. Once I pinned the circle I opened it so that it looked fuller as I was going.
