Should we be allowed to have this much fun crafting?! My Stamp Club for tonight asked to make a project with the Designer Rosette Die (see it online) and I came up with a fun birthday tag that features the Make A Cake stamp set (see it online) and the matching Patio Party Designer Series Paper (see it online).
Originally my hand wasn’t in the photo, but they you couldn’t tell how big this fun rosette is! The finished Rosette here is about 7″ across.
Project Tips: For best results, cut the Designer Rosette strip from a 5″ wide piece of card stock (I used 5 x 11″ of Summer Starfruit card stock here). After cutting the strip, cut it in half longways to make two strips. The two strips go together length-wise to make a full rosette. It’s much easier to get the rosettes straight if you die-cut first, then cut the strip into two. To get the scalloped or zig-zag edge, cut two 5″ strips and use 1/2 from each one.
To make the Rosette: Fan fold the die cut strip, then use Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Green Lid Glue) to adhere the last folds together to make a tube. Be sure to overlap the last creases for best strength. When the glue is dry, gently press down on the inside edge of the tube to make the rosette lie flat. Adhere to die cut tagboard scallop circle with Green Lid Glue & hold until set. Add decorative front pieces after the rosette is set.
