A hostess had requested that I demonstrate paper rosettes. Of course, I was all to happy to oblige. Since there are a couple of ways that we can create these lovely handmade embellishments, I decided to show both the Big Shot & Designer Rosettes Bigz XL Die and the Simply Scored Tool.
The Kraft Box was given to the hostess as a thank you gift. The rosette topper was made with the Big Shot and die. You can’t get much more simple than that. The downfall (if we can call it that) is that the rosette die is only one width between scored lines…1/2”. Therefore, the rosette will be taller than you’d want to use on a card.
For the card, I made the rosette with the Simply Scored Tool and scored my lines every 1/4”. Thus, creating a rosette that doesn’t stand so tall. Of course, you wouldn’t want to mail this lovely card in a regular post envelope.
I used the SAB Sycamore Street DSP and Sycamore Street Button & Ribbon package to create both rosettes. It’s a breeze to put these together. I used the Silicone Craft Sheet(item #127853) found on pg. 36 of the Spring 2013 Catalog and my handy hot glue gun. Place a blob of hot glue center of the craft sheet and build your rosette right on top of that. It pops right off when you’re done. Super simple!! A must have for all sorts of crafts! Don’t forget a little punch of Silver Glimmer with a 7/8” Scallop Circle punch.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ve been inspired to make rosettes…Big Shot or Simply Scored :) However, enjoy!!
