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...

  1. They look so pretty that I have to PIN it. They would so pretty displayed in the arrangement that you have in that last photo and hung on the way.

  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. :)
