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...

Gosh, I love these things. They came out so cute!!

Best winter wishes and stay warm, everyone!
