Rosette tutorial

Several people said they would like to see a tutorial for the rosettes that I made on these cards last week. The pictures are not the best, I am taking them on Sunday night and don't have good light, but you will definitely be able to get the idea. I am using some scrap paper for my demonstration.

You will need:
Paper strip cut to 1-1/2 x 12 inches
Small circle of paper (for the bottom)
Scoring tool
Strong adhesive
Embellishment for top of rosette


The first step is to decide how wide you want the rosette. I wanted one approximately 3-inches wide, so I cut a strip of paper 1-1/2 inches wide and 12-13 inches long. If your paper is not long enough, you can connect two strips of paper to form one longer one.


If you want a rounded or fancy edge on the rosette, punch one edge of your paper strip. I used a scalloped edge punch on my rosettes.

Then score the paper to make it easier to fold. I just used my embossing tool and my paper cutter to score between each scallop.



Accordion fold your paper on each score mark. This is also a good time to cover your circle with adhesive.

Put adhesive on one end of the accordion folded paper. Pinch the sides together to make a circle.

Adhere the rosette to the adhesive covered circle to hold your rosette in shape.


Here is a peek at the back side of the rosette.



Then you can decorate the top side as you would like.


I hope this all makes sense. If you have any questions, please email me at shestamps11-blogs at yahoo dot com.

Thanks for looking!
