My Creative Scrapbook Tutorial Day - Part 4

After already having shared with you 3 flower tutorials today here and on the My Creative Scrapbook blog (make sure to scroll back to my past posts to see these), i saved the best for last!

Pie Charts!


If you visit regular scrapbooking blogs, you will have noticed that Pie Charts are a popular new trend in scrapbooking.  When I saw the patterned paper in the LE kit, I instantly thought of creating some for one of my layouts. 

All these triangle-shaped flags on the Prima paper would make beautiful pie charts.

After cutting out a couple dozen flags, I looked through my cardstock scraps and fished out a piece of white cardstock as the base.

I then proceeded to glue each flag to the cardstock, alternating in patterns and colors.

Now is there a name for a 11-sided shape as this one?  An elevenagon, maybe?  :P  If someone happens to know, please educate me in my comments!

Since I wanted my pie charts to be round, I used a circle Spellbinder die to cut out a circle using the center as a guide.

 I then decided to cut out another circle shape out of the outer edge of the pie with a bigger circle die.

I ended up making 2 pie charts with 2 circle edges which I found added lots of cool colors and dimension to my layout.

Here are the pie charts (some of them i cut in half) on my layout:
