Rose Tutorial

I thought I would show you how I made the little rose I used on a recent tag I made.... it is so simple and quick (which was lucky as I made 35 of the tags)....

I used Elegant Eggplant cardstock from Stampin' Up! and punched out a circle.....

As you can see I used the 1 3/8" circle.....

I then took the scallop circle punch and punched around the circle hole that was left in the cardstock, discarding the circle that I had punched out.

I was left with a thin scallop edged frame.....

I cut in one of the scallops to open the circle up....

Using an embossing took, I bent the scallops slightly backwards to give a bit of shape to the scallops as these will be our rose leaves.

Once I had curved all the scallops, I started to wind the thin frame around my embossing tool. Once it started to wind I took it off the embossing tool and carried on by hand, making sure I didn't roll it too tight.

I used Tombow Adhesive to glue the end to the rest of the flower so it didn't unravel.

Next I cut a 1/2" circle and covered that with a light coating of Tombow Adhesive.

I stuck my loosely wound rose onto the 1/2" circle of cardstock.

I punched out a Martha Stewart leaf shape to finish the rose off.

As you will see, on my tag I used the leaf shape punched from the Big Bird Punch in Baha Breeze. Now you can see how easy they are to make please leave me a comment with a link to any projects that you make using these cute little roses.

Thanks for looking, stay safe and enjoy the snow!!
