A Circle Solution for Love Entwined

Well, I have had this morning to work on the circles for the Love Entwined and I started out doing them with a circle made from a 5/16 circle cutter that I purchased at Walmart. They are very inexpensive, I think it was about 4.00 and it was cutting out cardboard fine to use as a base for the circles. Well then I was looking at them and not really that happy with them. I guess I am a real fuss bucket but just was not happy. So then,
I came up with an idea.
Why not see if I can put fusible on the back of the material and cut out circles with the circle cutter.
So, here they are.
I think that these are working out fine for this as long as you don't mind that they are not appliqued but instead fused into place.
I will tell you that this method is really hard on that cheap little circle cutter and I only got 14 of the circles cut before it burned out, so I have to go buy another one or look into buying one that is 5/16 and made for canvas. I am going to check Canadian Tire to see if they have any of those ones. If not I might buy 2 of the cheap ones at Walmart again.
