“Rosettes” …..They are the Hot Item for 2011. You find them everywhere. There is an obvious trend with these “Rosettes”. Whether they are made from crepe paper, ribbon, or patterned paper, they are a hot item to purchase and make. I like that they can be used as a different types of embellishments, not just as a flower. They don’t have to be feminine like flowers. They can be made and used for any style. With the different colors and designs, from bright and bold to vintage and about any other design you can think of! There are a lot of tools out there to help you create your “Rosette”.
Rosettes are created from strips that are folded, (pleated) into a circle. It’s simple to make your own. Here is a link to a great vintage rosette tutorial video by Lain Ehmann.
Here is a good video showing how to create a rosette using your score tool, I have a Scor-Pal, that I just love.
