MAKE PRETTTY ROSETTES OUT OF PAPER STRIPES
Design by Shannon Tidwell
Shannon turned paper fans into pretty rosettes for her baby scrapbook page. To create a rosette, accordion-fold patterned-paper strips, making each fold about 1/2" wide. Adhere the ends of the strip to form a circle and, in preparation, apply dry adhesive where you'll place the flower on your page. Cup the rosette in your hands, push the center together, and press onto the adhesive. Add crafts glue to reinforce the center and outer edges if necessary.
To get the grouped look on Shannon's page, overlap the rosettes by interlocking the accordion folds. This groups the flowers without adding height.
