how to make rosettes, oh so pretty.

how to make paper rosettes,  I’ve found that differnt lengths of paper strips  will makes a differnt look full or fanned.  The width of the paper is differnt so play around to see what you’d like. It depends on if your using them  for  a larger object or not.like a big gift, or a scrap book page.. All depends on what you like.

First I cut a straight edge ,and then a fancy dancy scissors  cut, for a more interesting effect.

Now fold tight accordian style flipping back and fourth,   I used my fingers to fold,  or you could use a bone folder. If you want a fuller fan ;add more paper strips.{Glue , OH I use FABRI- TAC } could use a glue gun. just need a good glue .

nice tight folds.

now punch out a circle to glue to the bottom side of the rosette.   Glue needs to be a strong one so that it wont pop back up. remember to glue the bottom first, You can leave it plain with a small circle on top or decorate with 2 or more circles, of differnt sizes. maybe add  a charm on it. explore have fun with it.

stamp or write a message in cnter of circle

I added a button jem to this one , oh so PRETTY…… cant wait to see yours……..
