I tend to keep to cardmaking. I don't do a ton of 3-D projects, tags, boxes, what-have-yous.....
HOWEVER!! I did decide to try my hand at some rosettes, with the use of my VERY-important-to-all-my-projects Scor-Pal.
Rosettes are pretty easy to make, except for the fact that I consistently burn my fingers with the heat of my hot melt glue.
This is what I made--
Now, if I were to do this again, I would definitely be sure to use double-sided paper for the flag parts (the hanging pointy pieces). Live and learn on that one. I am going with the idea that the fact that there's two pieces makes it all okay. You're going there with me, right? Oh, good.....
I decorated the centers with leaf punch-outs, circles, and crescent moons also made with punches.
I made these by adding punched circle centers to my scored and folded paper with my hot melt glue gun. I stumbled onto a tutorial at some point, and that's they way they did it. I understand there are about a hundred ways to do these, some fabulous dies that help you, and all kinds of other ideas. I definitely think they are worth a look. I banged this puppy out in two sittings; one to make the rosettes, and one to decorate them and get them hung.
This is a really terrific way to use up some scraps and those last remaining sheets of Autumn paper that you have hanging around from last year. The great thing is that all the colors seem to work together, being in a seasonal palette.
Just mind your fingers when using that hot melt glue, will ya? That stuff SMARTS!
Hey, I'm entering this project in the Championing Award Medallions Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. You should play, too!!
Thanks for stopping by!
