and punching or cutting a 2inch circle of coordinating paper for each rosette
(I prefer the scalloped edge)
next, fold each accordion in half
then, staple/glue the ends of your pleated paper it to itself on what will be the back side (hope this makes sense) [if your paper gets a bit wrinkled, no worries - just fold along the creases again]
before you flip it over - glue your ribbon to one little spot so you can hang it
last, flip it over, glue your punched out paper to the front
and voila, a perfectly made rosette for your holiday decorating!!
you can also make these for Halloween:
or a baby shower:
They are fun and easy! Hope you are soon headed to your local craft store to get fun papers for your next event or holiday and make these, they will earn you points in the 'wow' factor department! Happy crafting!
