Rosette~ we start with 1 piece of 12x12 pattern cardstock ( tip, you will want to use cardstock and not a scrapbook or thinner paper). Take the 12x12 piece and cut it down to 3 strips that measure 3 1/4 x 12 inches. Now you will score the entire strip at every 1 /2 inch across the entire strip. Once you have that done accordion pleat the strips.
** Next you will take a hole punch and punch holes across one end of the strips (see photo)
.* Next take the twine and thread it thru the entire strip, like you are doing a sewing basting stitch( see the photo)
* Gather to strip up by tugging gently on the twine and laying the rosette flat as you go, then tie a nice tight knot at the end.
You just made the rosette, without hot glue!!!!
Middle "star" layer~
** Cut 3 squares out of green cardstock that measures approx 3 1/2-4 inches. Glue these onto the rosette in a "star" like fashion. **tip: you can also use a pretty doily for this layer**
We are using a 4-inch acrylic ornament half for the snowglobe
*Cut 1 circle that measures approx 4 inches from pattern paper for the background and cut 1 circle that is approx 4 inches out of white cardstock, to use for snow banks.
*stamp images, color, and fussy cut-out and add embellishments to create the scene.
*Next glue the background scene that you created to the acrylic ornament. you just created the snowglobe portion of the ornament!
** Now glue the ornament snowglobe to the rosette!
We used 2 silver chenille stems to decorate around the snowglobe and ties a pretty bow to the top of the rosette snowglobe ornament. We also used a 4-inch white circle and stamped a sentiment to glue to the back of the rosette.
