It's a lemon of a tutorial

Did you ever want to make your own paper piecing lemon or orange?   Trying to cut all the wedges and keep them even is hard to do.  So I came up with a "cheat" to make it easy to do. 
Here's my card using the new digi freebie Margaritas.
1. You will need 1 small (DP) circle, 2 medium circles (1 white cardstock, 1 scrap paper) and 1 large yellow circle.
2. Sponge all yellow pieces with yellow ink.
3. Fold scrap paper in half.
4. Then fold into quarters.
5. Mark the fold lines and tuck scrap paper under small DP circle.
6. Lightly mark the fold lines on the DP.  This is your guide for cutting the wedges.
7. Line up the lmarks from top to bottom with your cutter and cut circle in half.

8. Spin and cut in half again.
9. To make smaller wedges line up the peak with the bottom mark and cut.
10. Ink all the wedge edges.
11. Place wedges onto medium white cardstock circle, centre and glue.
12. Mat with large yellow circle.
Here's a print sheet.  Just click on it and save it.
