  • 1 Cut & fold rosettes

    To create an 8" rosette, cut 3 pieces of 4" x 10" x 1/2" paper. Score every 3/4" across the length of the papers. Attach 3 pieces together, creating a long piece. Accordion fold the paper.

    To create a 5" rosette, cut 2 pieces of 2 1/2" x 10" paper. Score every 3/4" across the length of the papers. Attach 2 pieces together, creating one long piece. Accordion fold the paper.

    If desired, cut simple triangle or diamond shapes while the paper is still accordion folded to create a decorative edge. Join the ends of each rosette together with hot glue creating a circle. Secure the circles by cutting out 4, 2" circles of matching paper and attaching 1 to the front and back of each rosette.

    Adhere the medium rosette to the largest rosette, flush at the bottom.
