Rosettes make the world go round!

In October I fell in love with these cute little paper circles and the fun you could have with them.I started to see them everywhere – on wreaths, cards, ornaments, home decorations.    So yesterday I ran out to Michales and purchased the Martha Stewart Score board with a 40% coupon so it was $11.99.  Here’s a slideshow and tutorial showing you how to make these cute rosettes.  Sorry for the condition of my nails – it’s been a long week!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Tools you will need: an 8″ X 11″ paper cut a piece, paper trimmer, score board, glue gun and a 1″ circle punch.

Cut a piece that is 1″ X 11″.  Score the paper at every 1/4″ all the way across.   Plug in your glue gun.  Then fold the paper in a mountain and valley accordian way.  Squeeze the paper tight at the end.  Put the two ends together so they overlap at one bump and glue.   Now you have a paper ring.  Use your circle punch and punch a circle for the rosette to be glued down on.  Pull the top of the ring together and push down so it’s flat circle. Put glue on the center while holding the folds down.   This can be kind of tricky because the circle wants to pop up to a ring – get another set of hands to help!  Quickly put your circle ontop of the glue as centered as you can get and push down while it dries.   Looks great!

You can even use your border punches after you score for an awesome effect.  Or glue a few sizes together and make an adorable snowman!  Or put a rosette under a circle punch for some added detail on your cards or scrapbook layout. Grab your scorepad and start making some Rosettes of your own! Have a magical day!
