    Thanks again for the positive responses to these. They are fun!
    K Meyers…I can’t take much credit for the clean cut shapes. I have access to a nifty little device that is a steel disc cutter…this one made by Pepe and cuts from 1/8 in to one in. in diameter. Punches the disc out neat and clean. I do sand the sharp edges a bit.
