I had the chance to share a post on the GCD Studios blog this week so I thought I would share it here, too.
So… here you go. 🙂
Today, I’ve got a fun twist on the popular rosette fad for you: Hang them on a line.
I’m going to show two cards that use hanging rosettes and I am going to show you how to make a rosette! So let’s get started.
You are going to need:
* paper (GCD Studios paper, of course!)
* a strong adhesive (I prefer a good liquid glue.)
* a scoring board
* a 1″ circle punch
Here’s what you do:
1. Start by cutting a 2″ x 6″ piece of patterned paper.
2. Set the paper upside down on a scoring board. Score every 1/4″.
3. Flip it over and cut the strip into two 1″ x 6″ strips.
4. Glue the ends together.
5. Cover a 1″ circle punched or cut from cardstock with glue. Press the pleated circle down on top of it. This is going to take some force. Don’t be surprised if it takes a little pressure. Hold until the glue holds the rosette down.
The end result will be something like these.
6. Once you have several rosettes made, adhere them on a line of string.
Then, use the line of rosettes on a card or a scrapbook layout!
I made two lines of rosettes to use on two cards to share with you today.
Here I put circles made from scraps of patterned paper from the Elementary My Dear collection between my rosettes.
I added a little visual interest to my line by added a clip at the end.
I played things straight with this Thank You card.
I hung the rosettes on string and then just wrapped the line around the card.
I finished the card off by adding a bow to the line.
See you again soon!
