  • Studio Favorites: Circle Punches Part I | Carle Museum
    of the best brands and styles whenever we need circles for the Public Art Programs and Workshops Our first favorite shown above is the adjustable Circle Cutter by Fiskars The blade arm cuts circles between one and eight inches in diameter The cutter locks in place as you twist the blade around preventing shifting and cutting mistakes Also because it s clear it s easy to position it anywhere to avoid wasting paper The blade is sharp enough to cut through at least two sheets of construction paper at once You will need a self healing mat when using this cutter or you could slice right into your table Another one of our favorites for cutting circles is the Fiskars Squeeze Punch Round and Round We use the extra large 2 inch size but this style punch is also available in other sizes For this new design Fiskars flipped the cut out to the front so it s easy to see exactly where you re punched Our volunteers love this style because it s very easy to squeeze the handle without tiring out your hand If you only have the budget to add one style to your arsenal this in the punch you should own For very small circles we ve recently been using Martha Stewart s 1 inch punch We prepare circles on strips of paper and hang on to them for future projects Play with the spacing between each punch and the negative strips will be just as much fun to use in a collage as the shapes themselves Above are a couple of solutions to our no scissors challenge during Circle Circus Do you have a favorite paper punch style or brand Let us know and maybe we ll test it in The Studio by Diana MacKenzie Tags circle circle circus construction paper fiskars geometric martha stewart paper paper punch shapes This entry was posted on Thursday February 9th 2012 at 11 14 am and is filed under By Diana MacKenzie Collage Every Day Art Program Mixed Media Our Favorite Materials You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback from your own site Leave a reply Your name Mail will not be published Website Share CAPTCHA This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions Contributors Meghan Burch Diana MacKenzie Categories About This Blog 1 Bookmaking 24 By Diana MacKenzie 76 By Meghan Burch 63 Classes 22 Collage 66 Displays Window Shades 11 Drawing 50 Elementary School 97 Every Day Art Program 63 Found Materials 48 High School 25 Homemade Materials and Tools 16 Infants and Toddlers 47 Internship Program 25 Light 12 Middle School 33 Mixed Media 66 Nature 46 Our Approach 22 Our Favorite Materials 10 Outreach 23 Painting 57 Paper 37 Preschool 81 Printmaking 39 Professional Development 29 Resources 5 Sculpture 44 Space to Create 2 Special Events 90 Special Guests

    to put together or the best way to attach them with the glue or wire Our studio staff is here to help find solutions when visitors need help with the materials Below is an interaction I had recently with a young boy age 6 who was very enthusiastic about the telescope he was making using a long skinny tube Boy I m trying to make a telescope and I want to use this round red reflector on the end so that when you look through it everything is red But when you look through you can t see anything Diana I look into the telescope Well it looks like the red reflector is too thick to see through Is there something else we could find in the baskets that is more transparent  I see the basket full of bottle caps and the basket with ribbons Maybe there is something that you could attach to the end that is thin enough to see through B That just may work He eagerly sifted through the basket of caps and found a clear bottle cap that was almost the same diameter as his tube He also found some shimmery ribbon and looked through the tube as it was wrapped around the other end He ended up using the bottle cap because he liked how it was removable To accompany his telescope he made a small cardboard dish to hold small objects to observe through the tube I m always amazed at the variety of visitors imaginative ideas applied to the same arrangement of materials Stop by before February 1st to make your own Sculpture Story by Diana MacKenzie Tags 3d sculpture sculpture stories This entry was posted on Thursday January 12th 2012 at 11 40 am and is filed under By Diana MacKenzie Every Day Art Program Found Materials Sculpture You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback from your own site Leave a reply Your name Mail will not be published Website Share CAPTCHA This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions Contributors Meghan Burch Diana MacKenzie Categories About This Blog 1 Bookmaking 24 By Diana MacKenzie 76 By Meghan Burch 63 Classes 22 Collage 66 Displays Window Shades 11 Drawing 50 Elementary School 97 Every Day Art Program 63 Found Materials 48 High School 25 Homemade Materials and Tools 16 Infants and Toddlers 47 Internship Program 25 Light 12 Middle School 33 Mixed Media 66 Nature 46 Our Approach 22 Our Favorite Materials 10 Outreach 23 Painting 57 Paper 37 Preschool 81 Printmaking 39 Professional Development 29 Resources 5 Sculpture 44 Space to Create 2 Special Events 90 Special Guests and Artist Visits 34 Archive February 2016 1 January 2016 1 December 2015 4 November 2015 3 October 2015 2 September 2015 2 August 2015 4 July 2015 3 June 2015 3 May 2015 1 April
