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!

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
