How to Make Paper Rosettes

I have been looking at all the pretty paper fan rosettes. It's like making 2 fans and putting them together. I remember making countless fans when I was a kid.

This whole craft is about folding paper to make a fan and then putting them together to form a large circle.

Here is how to make these pretties!


Did you ever fold paper to make a fan? This is very similar to that. In fact, it's the same - only put 2 of the fans back to back to make a whole round rosette and glue together. You'll see... it's easy.


Take a piece of scrapbook paper and fold it back and forth. Make 2 of these.






Cut this in half.





Attach all the pieces together to form a long folded rectangle using double sided clear tape.






Tape the ends together also to form a big folded circle.







Lay it out flat.






Put some hot glue in the center to hold the rosette together... done.

I considered putting a paper heart in the center but it seemed like it might be too much.

Now, I can hear my mother saying (she hasn't seen them yet), "What are you going to DO with them?" As if making them is not enough. They have to have a function, too. Well, that is a future post, my lovelies...

  2. Thanks, Darlene. That's really sweet of you. Really? You think I should hang them as is? Wow. I just set that up for the picture but maybe you are right. They do look kinda pretty that way. Maybe over the mantel as I have to get the Santa Claus picture off of there soon. :)

  8. Completely love these paper beauties. I especially like the different printed papers you used. Visiting via "Family Fun Friday" from over at www.ritewhileucan.com where I gush over all things paper and the lost art of letter writing. You might enjoy.
