Hello Friends !
Annette here for Scrapbook Blessings Club to share with you Thursday's Project Tutorial making a hand made Rosette without utilising a Die or Cricut Machine.
Firstly, I have my "Tip of the Day"........ to have no waste of my Glitter Glue product, I always squeeze some Glitter Glue from my bottle into a small screw top container. I found that I was guessing how much product I needed to squeeze from my bottle causing a huge amount of waste of my product. So now I squeeze an amount in a small jar and seal the lid with the left over Glitter Glue for my next project thus no waste whatsoever.
Pill Bottles are great to keep for this use also as they have great sealing screw top lids.****************************************
Now, onto today's Project :
This is a hand made Rosette which I have finished off my Gift Muffin Box with. I use these Muffin Gift Boxes for Thank You and special occasions.
Here is what you will need to make your Rosette:
- Cardstock or Crafters Cardboard (I have used Black)
- Double Sided Adhesive Tape
- Scor-Pal Score Board
- Paper Cutter
- Glitter Glue (I have used Silver Glitter Glue)
- Small Paint Brush for Glitter Glue application
- 1" Circle Punch
- Martha Stewart Edger
- Embellishment for the centre of Rosette ~ I have used Crystal/Pearl
- Cut 1 Strip of Cardstock or Craft Cardboard ~ 12" long X 1+1/2" Wide
- Using a Martha Stewart Punch Edger make pattern along one edge
- Once edging completed, cut off the end pattern pieces from both ends to ensure pattern is even on both ends, this allows for a perfect overlap when joining.
- Cut 2 x 1" Circle with a small Circle Punch
- Score Rosette by lining up the holes to get even scoring for the folds.
- Don't forget, the wider you make your score lines the thicker the Rosette. If the Rosette is too thick, it is very difficult to work with. Just move the hole patterns back and forth until the holes are lined up and centred where the score must be positioned then score as seen in first photo. See how fairly close I have the scoring, not too wide.
- I generally make up the Rosette before glittering the edge line, but today I am going to do my demonstration by edging the Rosette with Glitter Glue prior to folding just to show exactly where I Glitter the edging.
- To have minimum waste of my Glitter Glue product, I always squeeze some Glitter Glue from my bottle into a small screw top container. I found that I was guessing how much product I needed to squeeze from my container causing a huge amount of waste of my product. So now I squeeze an amount in a small jar and seal the lid with the left over Glitter Glue for my next project thus no waste whatsoever. Pill Bottles are great to keep for this use also as they have great sealing screw top lids.
- Accordian fold the Rosette pressing each fold firmly to give the Rosette a good sharp edge line.
- Once Rosette is folded, overlap a complete pattern, line up the pattern and use a strong double sided adhesive tape to join. I use a very strong "Marine" Double Sided adhesive. Marine Double Sided Adhesive will adhere absolutely anything, ie: metal, fabric, cardboard, paper and it will never come unstuck. The only problem is, you must get it right the first time otherwise it is very difficult to remove. Its quite possible your project could be destroyed just trying to remove.
- With the Rosette now joined, turn the Rosette inside out so the back part of the Rosette is showing as in photo.
- With 1 x 2" Circle place this close to your Rosette and have it ready for attaching to the back of your Rosette with hot glue.
- Press your Rosette down and push all of the folds into the centre trying to get it as tight as possible, then glue on the 1 x 2" circle backing.
- Once the back has been glued on, turn over and then glue the other 1 x 2" Circle on the front ensuring it is perfectly centred right in the middle of the Rosette.
- Rosette is now ready for decorating. At this point this is where I generally Glitter Glue the edge, but in this case it has already been done.
- Using a 22mm Crystal Pearl Embellishment, either hot glue or place on with Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
- Here is my finished "Hand Made Rosette" ready for my Project ~ finished Rosette 2+3/4"
- Today I have chosen one of my favourite items I love to make and that is my Muffin Boxes. I purchase my Muffin Boxes from Ebay in a flat pack of 100 which work out around A$0.47 cents per piece.
- I fold the box and join, but also, so that I have a beautiful sitting front lid on the box, I cut off the two front Tabs and then I use my Marine Double Sided Adhesive Tape for a perfect flat finish.
- Here is my finished Rosette set on my Muffin Box. I generally fill these boxes with Chocolates, Lollies, Cakes/Muffins and also Jewellery in tissue paper make a lovely gift for someone special.
- The smaller Rosette situated on the top left hand corner of my project was made with the Tim Holtz Die. This will be another Tutorial.
