Default Washer necklaces - Is there a better way?

SO, I've fallen in love ,with making washer neckalces. I absolutely adore them. I think I've made one for myself out of every single paper HL and Michael's sells.
However, as much as I love them...I HATE cutting the circles out. It is so annoying and my fingers have permanent sissor indentions seeing as how I just cut 125 circles!
Someone please tell me there is an easier way to do this. I wish I could find someone to make me a die for my cuttlebug to do it.
Grrrr...my fingers are going to fall off!!

Lorena, how do you cut it with the cricut? So glad I saw this post, I was just thinking about selling my cricut. However, if I can cut these washer necklaces with them then I would be estatic.

I went and found washers that fit the circle punches I owned. I'll have to check te sizes for you but there's now way I'd be doing these without punches.

I use the washer itself and use a crafters knife and cut around. I cut the center first and then place the washer down on it and cut the outer. I sometimes glue the paper down first then cut. I hated using scissors, this was I can cut about 50 in an hour.
