Have some leftover scrapbook papers that you don’t have a use for? Do you have scraps of paper lying around that aren’t large enough to use in an album? You’re in luck, because with a little bit of inventiveness and imagination from CM Advisor Tina (and the help of the Custom Cutting System Circle Patterns) you can create your very own DIY paper rosettes! These rosettes work great as decorations for events or parties (plus, they just look cool). Check out how they look when done with the Flourish papers!
To create this project, you will need:
- Decorative Paper Pack
- Decorative Stickers
- Decorative Variety Mat Pack
- 12-inch Trimmer with the Scoring Blade
- All-Purpose Scissors
- Custom Cutting System with the Circle Patterns
- Tape Runner with Repositionable Adhesive
- Multi-Purpose Tool
- Hot Glue Gun
Step 1: For each rosette, cut two strips of patterned paper that measure 1-1/2″ x 12″ and 1-1/2″ x 6″.
Step 2: Score each strip at 1/2″ intervals using the Multi-Purpose Tool and 12-inch Trimmer, or the new 12-inch Trimmer and the Scoring Blade. Accordion fold the two strips.
Step 3: Using Repositionable Adhesive, adhere the 6″ strip to the 12″ strip and then adhere the ends to make a loop.
Step 4: Using the smallest Circle Custom Cutting System Pattern and cut onto the cardstock along the inside of the ring with the Green Blade. Then, using the largest Circle Custom Cutting System Pattern, gently press the pleated loop until it nestles inside. Even out the pleats. Put a glop of hot glue along the top of the pleats and press one of the punched circles into the glue and hold until it hardens. Flip the rosette over and repeat this same process on the other side.
Step 5: Using the inside ring of the smallest Circle Custom Cutting System Pattern, cut a circle from cardstock or a Variety Mat Pack and adhere to the middle of the rosette.
Step 6: Adhere a heart sticker from the Flourish Stickers to a matching mat. Fussy cut out the heart and adhere to the middle with Foam Squares.
Step 7: Adhere the straw to the back of the rosette with hot glue.
