Default How in the world do you cut perfect circles for bottlecaps?

I'm trying my first bottlecaps and I can't cut a decent looking circle to save my life. I tried using an exacto and tracing around a quarter, doing freehand, etc. etc. Most of the 1" hole punches I have seen look like they wouldn't allow you to see exactly what you are cutting. This can't be as hard as I am making it.

I have a 1 inch punch from michaels, that has a clear plastic disc on the bottom so you can see what you cut. HTH

The 1" hole punch I have is from creative memories and if you flip it up side down and slid the sheet with your images on it upside down also you can see the image through the hole hope this makes sense

The 1 inch hole punch at hobby lobby, michaels or AC Moore is what I use. It is so easy to use! You just slide your paper in the slot, look through the window opening and make sure it is centered and cut! EASY!!
HTH!

also when your looking at the hole punches in the packaging you can't see the clear plastic window because it is in the back , but there is one..

It took me a minute to figure out to flip the dang whole punch over the 1st time I used it... hahaha Oh my goodness. I had a good laugh at myself. Just flip the whole punch over and you can see exactly where it's lining up.
