We had SNOW here yesterday (ok a passing snow flurry, but it counts when you love snow as much as I do!)...so this Veterans' Day I am not only thankful to all those who serve in our armed forces, but also thankful for the beautiful weather we had to celebrate it in!!
Today I am going to share with you a tutorial I made so you will hopefully be inspired to make some yourself. These are not a fragile little paper ornament, but really are a nice, substantial gift!! Here's the first one I made for you today and the tutorial will follow (BE SURE TO COMMENT HERE and/or ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE...YOU'LL SEE THE GREAT PRIZE AT THE END OF THIS POST!):
Double Rosette Ornament:
You'll need: Martha Steward Score Board (or your scored cutting tool and a stylus will work too)
4 pieces of patterned paper (1.5inches wide by 12 inches long)
4 pieces of patterned paper (1 inch wide by 12 inches long)
hot glue gun
string or twine of your choice to hang itDecorations (stamps: like I have with the sample)
Step 1: Score each piece (yup all 8) at every half inch as shown:
Step 4:Now the hardest part, (but only awkward, not really difficult). You'll want to lay the inside down and form the rosette like this:
Here are some more samples:
