Making a Paper Rosette….

My daughter had mentioned that I should buy the “Martha Stewart Scoreboard”, so off I went to my local Michaels and bought it. When I got home I sat at my craft table and looked at my new purchase. Ok, well….. What am I going to do with this? I grabbed my iPad and started googling scoreboard projects. Ooooohhhhh, this could be fun and interesting!

So I started playing. I took a piece of white card stock and made a cute little box. Wow that was easy and fun!

Next I decided to make a rosette.

This is what you need:

a strip of paper about 1 inch wide

small circles of a different paper

some type of a small embellishment

glue

First step is to score the strip of paper all the way to the end. I scored every quarter inch.

Next you will need to fold back and forth along each of the scored lines.

Glue the 2 ends together so that it continues with the back and forth and creates a circle

Squeeze it together and place it upright on the table. with one finger on the top push it down.

Yay! 🙂 Now you glue the 2 circles to each side of the rosette. I used dot glue, but you can use your hot glue gun also.

Almost done!! If you use a wet glue you will want to let it dry before you continue. Next thing to do is put your embellishment on top. And you’re done.

Here is the little white box I made with the rosette. I actually glued a piece of ribbon around the edge of the box, filled it with paper filler & put a gift card in it for my daughter’s birthday 🙂
