DIY Paper Rosettes

Very small rosettes look also cute as decoration for gifts, or as cake and cupcake toppers.

Materials

  • thin cardstock or wrapping paper
  • glue stick or duct tape
  • twine or thin wire
  • ribbon for hanging

Tools

  • hole puncher
  • craft scissors
  • metal ruler
  • blade knife
  • self-healing cutting mat

Instructions

1) Trim the paper

Trim a sheet of light-weight cardstock or gift wrap to a rectangle strip, the length being 3 to 4 times the width. You need two strips for larger rosettes, and one strip for small rosettes.

 

2) Fold the paper

Using a pencil, mark 1, 2 or 3 centimetre – this is 0.4, 0.8 or 1.2 inches – increments along the length of both paper strips. Fold the strips lengthwise using the marks as a guide. Aim for sharp creases to achieve the best look.

 

3) Create the rosette

Using a hole punch, punch holes close to the bottom of each fold. If you want to customise the edge of the rosette, cut the side opposite to the holes into pointed or rounded shapes. Glue both paper strips together with tape. Then, thread a piece of twine or ribbon of through the holes. Fasten and secure the twine forming a circle. Using tape connect both ends of the rosette. Apply hot glue to a small carton circle and attach the middle of the rosette, which helps to keep the rosette flat and in shape.

 

4) Decorate the rosette

If preferred, cover the centre of the rosette with a paper circle cutout or ornament. You can also glue differently sized paper rosettes on top of each other to create beautiful layered effects.

Difficulty: easy

Materials: card stock
