Rosette Die

Friday, March 9, 2012
Also at the Down Line meeting I showed an example of what you can do using the Rosette Die from the Occasions Mini.  I saw someone make a card with this technique which looks like a little skirt and wanted to give it at whirl.  I had so many scraps left over from making the envelopes I felt that I wanted to use them up and have cards to match all the envelopes.  This is a fun die with a beautiful finished look.  
I'm thankful that Glenda let me borrow her die to give it a try.

This is the Rosette Die

 As you can see from the card you have one side that has this beautiful border

The other side has this cool zig zag edge.

I made this Rosette because I wanted to practice to see if I wanted 
to purchase this die for myself.
What do you think?  Cute isn't it??!! You can make it as wide or full as you want.  This particular Rosette (SU has been calling them 'Lollys') 
is made using two full lengths taped together.  
I used a hot glue gun to secure the center, and a matching button for a fun finished look.
Now, what was I going to do with this Lolly?  I have seen fun banners and party decorations and I am sure to have a chance to use it for just that in the future, but for now I thought how pretty it would look as a decoration on a box.  I had several of these boxes on hand and thought now was the best time to put them to use.  Once again I used the scrap pieces of Designer Paper to cover the sides, and some Whisper White card stock run through the Rosette Die to edge the cover.

I absolutely love the way it turned out.

Thanks For Stopping By!

Have a Blessed Day!!
