Default Re: making bottlecap images using gimp?

I know this is a little old but im wondering how to 'select' the image after using the ellipse tool? I've been using Gimp but I've never ran into this prob. I use the ellipse to draw the circle around the area I want but when I go to copy & paste into the 1" template it pastes the entire image not just the area inside the circle. Can anyone make it more clear? I think i have ADD or I'm just tired & delirious

Here's a tut with a template, it was meant for button making, but the same principles apply.
