Hello friends!!! Today's post is in response to an offer I made in my Precious Remembrance Shop post (found here) to share how I made the rosettes. Several of you said you would like to know and so I have done a photo tutorial. A little background first. A few years into my paper crafting journey I saw how many crafters made rosettes using long strips of paper that they accordion folded and then glued the ends together to make perfect rosettes. I even purchased a set of dies that were supposed to help me make "quick and easy" rosettes... ha! Failure every single time! I was "all thumbs" and just couldn't figure out how to make it work. Fast forward a few years and I saw this die on the Cat's Pajamas website (you can see it here). After watching the video I thought "finally something that can actually help me make a rosette"! But I hesitated to purchase it and the more I looked at the die the more I realized that I had something similar in my die collection that would work just as well... Spellbinders scalloped circle dies and lacey circle dies. So, I got them out, gave it a try and a rosette was born, lol! Okay... first thanks for sticking with me this far... now to the tutorial!
After scoring is completed cut on one of the score lines to the center of the circle and begin folding on the score lines.. (I guess it would be considered a "peak and valley" fold since the first fold makes a "peak" and the next a "valley".) Repeat with the second circle. This will give you the two halves of the rosette.
