Today Diana Fisher is Making Memories’ Guest Designer. Diana created a handmade rosette and she explains how she did that.
We all have them—those extra strip of paper we trim off to make sure we have that perfect page. You could save them for later, or you can use them right then and there to make matching embellishments for your scrapbook page.
All you need is:
-A scoring board
-A hot glue gun or other fabulous adhesive
-A button or embellishment for the top
-A circle-shaped scrap for the base of the flower
Once you’ve assembled your materials, score the scrap of paper using the score board. By adjusting the wide and height of your scrap you can create a variety of different rosettes. Play around with skinny and thicker scraps to see which, affect you like best.
Apply hot glue to the center of the circle-shaped scrap.
Fold your accordion-folded scored paper so the ends meet and place on top of the hot glue on the circle paper.
Hold down until the glue dries enough for you to let go.
Drop a small bit of glue on the top of your rosette and then adhere your button or embellishment.
Thanks Diana for sharing your talents with us.
