Rosette gift tags.

Its my turn to do a tutorial this week
over at Polka Doodles.
The challenge this week is
(Click on the pic to go to the challenge)

I thought I would make these bright
 and cheerful gift tags.
I used Bonbon Belles CD
for my papers and my embellies.
Stick with me, there are a lot of photos !

I realised making another project
I had no idea how to make a rosette !
So I thought I would use one in my tutorial this week.
Sometimes we overlook the simplest of things!

You will need a score board, hot glue gun, papers
circle dies - a large and a small one.
Hole punch tool, gems, glitter glue
String, embellishments for decoration.

Cut strips of paper 1 1/4" x 11"

 Score a strip of paper every 1/4"
Then fold into a concertina

Hot glue the ends together so it makes a circle.
Now form a circle by gathering the folds together
and folding it in on itself to make a circle.
HOLD tight with your fingers !

Hot glue onto the large circle and place the 
folded paper onto the glue, holding in position until it is dry.
(Only a few seconds)
Then hot glue the smaller circle on top of the paper.

Now punch a hole in one of the scallops of the tag.
Cut along the edge of the paper circle 
into a zig zag using the folds.

Tie a piece of string through the hole.

Now the tag is ready for decorating !

I used my Stickles to glitter around all the edges.
When it was dry I stuck my sentiment from the CD
on the middle then decorated with 
butterfly and flowers and of course gems !

Right I'm off to decorate the other ones
Oranges, Pinks and stripes !!!
Have fun !!
