Rosette Gift Tags

Lizzie here!!! Its my turn this week to do the tutorial.
I realised when making another project
I had no idea how to make a rosette!
So I thought I would use one in my tutorial this week.
Sometimes we overlook the simplest of things!

You will need a score board, hot glue gun, papers
circle dies - a large and a small one.
Hole punch tool, gems, glitter glue
String, embellishments for decoration.

Cut strips of paper 1 1/4" x 11"

Score a strip of paper every 1/4"
Then fold into a concertina

Hot glue the ends together so it makes a circle.
Now form a circle by gathering the folds together
and folding it in on itself to make a circle.
HOLD tight with your fingers!

Hot glue onto the large circle and place the 
folded paper onto the glue, holding in position until it is dry.
(Only a few seconds)
Then hot glue the smaller circle on top of the paper.
I used Kraft card as I liked the contrast to the candy colours.

Now punch a hole in one of the scallops of the tag.
Cut along the edge of the paper circle 
into a zig zag using the folds.

Tie a piece of string through the hole.

Now the tag is ready for decorating!

I used my Stickles to glitter around all the edges.
When it was dry I stuck my sentiment from the CD
on the middle then decorated with a
butterfly and flowers and of course gems!

Right I'm off to decorate the other ones
Oranges, Pinks and stripes!!!
Have fun!!

  5. Brilliant, I've tried so many times to make rosettes and whatever glue I've used, they've always sprung apart. Why did I never think of hot glue? Thank you for solving my problem.
