Paper Rosette Tutorial



Happy Monday evening! I'm posting early for Tuesday because I've received several emails asking how to make these paper rosettes and I promised to post a tutorial last week but didn't get around to it, so sorry! So here they are again, this time as a holiday decoration or table centerpiece. I found some old bottles while going through a box of stuff recently and thought they would look really neat with holiday rosettes in them! So here we go...

First, decide how large you want your rosette to be and cut four squares to that size. For the ones in this vase, I started with 3" squares for one and 4" squares for the other. Then score the squares every 1/2".


Next, fold on the score lines to make a mounain fold. If you're using double-sided patterned paper, you want the side that you want to see the most of facing up. (Sorry for this crappy photo!)


Next, take your four mountain folded pieces and fold them in half.



Next, put sticky strip or strong adhesive in the center of each piece and close them up.


Next, put sticky strip or strong adhesive on one side of each part and adhere all four parts together.

Voila, the finished rosette!


Just an FYI, the rosette on the pillowbox below started as a 2" square.


The rosettes on the gift bags below started as 4" squares.


FYI, I'm pretty sure, like 90% sure, that I read how to do these in Matthew Mead's Halloween Book that's on newsstands now (with the magazines). He is sooo talented. He's often featured in Country Home magazine, and I have an awesome special Christmas issue that he did last year. Definitely go to his website, he has tons of resources and free Halloween templates and other downloads too!

If you have any questions, feel free to email me! I hope this helps! Thanks for your interest in these, I'm glad you liked them! If you make some, be sure and post the link here so we can check them out! Hugs and happy stamping!
