Easy Grids of Circles Card

Hi, everyone! Teri here with a fun way to use up the leftover negative pieces of 3D Foam Circles: Create cards with circle grids! These cards are easy to recreate!

Creating the Circles Grids

Start by taking the negative pieces of a couple 3D Foam Circles sheets and trimming them down so you have a couple grids. You can use a paper trimmer or scissors to do this. You might need take a few passes at cutting the foam, due to the height of it!

Cover a card with patterned paper. Place one of your “grids” on the card.

Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside Technique

Apply flock or glitter to the grid. Make sure the foam is completely covered. I suggest running your finger over it to make sure there are no sticky spots exposed! If there is, dump a little extra flock (or glitter) onto the grid. Tap off the excess and DONE!

Final Details

Add to your card’s design by placing a sentiment on it, as well as a few embellishments. Use additional 3D Foam Shapes, I used the 3D Foam Pennants, and E-Z Runner® Stars with flock to round out the design. Don’t forget the sequins too for extra sparkle.

Finish your card with a piece of twine or floss! Adhesive Dots work great for holding bows in place so they don’t move around!

Go BIG with a Bigger Circles Grid

Here’s a second card created with a “grid” from another leftover negative!

The grid for this card is much larger than on my first card so I decorated some of the grid by embellishing the insides with stars, sequins and smaller circles. I also didn’t feel like using twine on this card so I went without! It would have looked great with twine though if I had decided to do so!

I hope you are inspired to give this “grid” technique a try next time you have a leftover negative piece of 3D Foam Circles! It’s a great way to get the most bang for your creative buck and let nothing to waste!

Happy creating,
