How to Create Pie Charts by Guest Designer Nicole Doiron

This is our fourth post today.  Please scroll down to view our previous posts. 

We hope you've been enjoying all of the creative tips that we've been sharing today from My Creative Scrapbook Guest Designer Nicole Doiron.  We're not done yet! Nicole has one more wonderful set of instructions for you today featuring our April Limited Edition kit.

Here's Nicole:

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


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.
