Circle punches

Before we get into the circle templates, I want to let you know that the smallest circle is 1″.

If you need to make just a few circles smaller than that, try scaling down the print out.

For example, for 1/2″ circles, simply print at 50%.

If you need to make a lot of circle cut outs, look for a circle punch. I’ve done a whole lot of crafting in my life – trust me when I say you do not want to cut out a zillion tiny circles by hand! 

Even a 1″ size becomes pretty tedious to cut out in quantity! If you think you’ll need a lot of 1″ circles, I really recommend just getting a circle punch.

EK tools Circle Punch, 1-Inch
  • Punches a precise 1-inch diameter circle
  • Use with other nesting punches to create perfectly graduating layers
  • Perfect for scrapbooks, cards, decorations and any paper craft

You can also find larger circle punches.

I’ve used my 2″ punch a lot of homemade gift tags over the years. It probably isn’t worth if for a one-off project where you just need a few circles, but if you anticipate cutting a lot of circles for projects, a DIY wedding, etc., it is totally worth a few dollars.

Large & extra large circle patterns

Please make sure to follow the links to download at the PDF printable circles. Do not right click and save the images – they are very low resolution and will not print well.

Many home printers today can print with margins as small as 1/4″ (a lot of printers geared towards printing photos can even print borderless!)

Assuming you can print with a .25″ margin, this large circle template should be 8″ across. If you have to print with larger margins, the circle will be slightly smaller.

Need a bigger circle? No problem!

This template creates a circle up to 10 inches across! Cut it out, trace it, then flip the template to create the second half of the circle. You can also print two and tape them together, if you prefer.

Still not big enough for you? This circle is an enormous 16″!

Only one quarter of it fits on the page, so I highly recommend printing at least two copies and taping them together.

Printing four copies and taping them together to form a circle will lead to more accurate results. Enjoy your extra large circle template!
