Top cone has lace from the large selection of beautiful trims from Flamingo Scraps. The rosette is Echo Park Holly Berry paper from the Traditional collection. Covering for this is fabric from my stash. Center bling from stash,and dangling bling is Prima.
Bottom cone, the paper is the Lily Bee Designs, Jingle Egg Nog, topped with beautiful Maya Road Tu Tu Tulle in Vintage Buttermilk and Teal.
Making these little rosettes was SO much fun! I used Zip Dry as my adhesive because it's easy and fast drying. Don't be intimidated if they keep curling up on you ! I used brads from the paper pack for centers, as well as items from my stash. The large one with the silver paper center has Maya Road Tu Tu Tulle in Buttermilk and Cherry Red around it, and the larger of the red ones has a Maya Road Teardrop Pearl Center on it.
This is what your cones and rosettes will look like when you cut them. I used a scrap piece of chipboard from a paper pack to make the cones more sturdy.. Place your patterned paper on the chipboard so you can cut them together. It will insure that they fit nicely. You can also adhere them together BEFORE cutting, saving a step. You see the flat rosette, with the perforations, making folding into an accordion very easy.
This is the technique I use for fanning . Once you have your adhesive on one end of the rosette, I place my finger over the middle, spread it out to make a circle, then pinch it together. You will have circles that are cut out with them, so if you want more stability, put adhesive on the circle, center your rosette, fan it out, pinch ends together, and press.
I can't wait to show you what other goodies I'll be making with the papers from the Christmas In July Kit -Traditional. You'll want to see what I have in store for you to keep the kiddies involved and happy as well.
