One of the products I used for my rosette card is the vintage Christmas self-adhesive metal frames there are 6 little accents in a package; 1 1/8" inches and the images are simply adorable. I've use 5 of the metal frames in the photo below.
I've wanted to try making these paper rosettes for sometime so I just did a google search for a paper rosette video and found several on You Tube to help me get started... they are super easy and so fun to make, these are going to be addicting!
My large rosette with before scoring is 12" x 1 1/2" the small is 12" x 1"
I place small 1 1/4" circles behind the metal frames before placing on the rosette.
I used my Martha Stewart border punch for the cream border.
Look at the close-ups of the metal charms the images are so cute!
These rosettes would make really cute embellishments for a package
