Hello friends! Have you ever made a paper rosette? If not, the Rosette Die-namics from MFT Stamps makes the process super easy because it both cuts and pre-scores your paper so that you don’t have to. If you use the die as it is intended, the diameter of the rosette is about 3″ across – making a lovely, large rosette to add to your projects. In fact, they would be perfect for placing on top of a gift instead of a bow, if you desired to use it in that fashion.
Typically, you would die cut your paper two times with this die, fold them like a fan, and then attach the ends of each piece together to form your rosette. However, I only die cut my strip one time and then used my paper trimmer to cut it in half and then followed the same steps as I had mentioned above (folding each piece back and forth on the score lines like a fan and then attaching the ends together on both sides). Instead of resulting in a rosette with a 3″ diameter, mine measured at around 1.5″. I like adding the smaller sized rosette to the front of my cards because it frees me to add other items (such as the Lush Leaves that I used to decorate my card front as well).
I used a hot glue gun and a circle die cut (any circle die would work as long as it’s smaller in diameter than your rosette) to hold the back of my rosette together so that it kept it’s gorgeous shape. On the front of my rosette, I glued a smaller sized circle with liquid adhesive and then added a snowflake to the top of this piece using the Stylish Snowflakes Die-namics that are also re-releasing in this upcoming vault release. If you look at my card base, you can see a stitched vertical rectangle piece that I had die cut from Kraft Card Stock. This piece was cut using the Vertical Stitched Strips Die-namics that will also be releasing tomorrow, November 7th. There will also be a horizontal set that will be releasing as well!
