Hi All! I am here to share a fun totorial with you today! Earlier this month I created this layout with the April kit:
The little roses that you see on the page are hand rolled roses made with the American Crafts “Dear Lizzy” fabric paper. Even though they look little complicated, with just a few supplies and repetitious steps you’ll soon realize they’re really quite simple.
1.) A 1/2 inch by 8 inch piece of the Dear Lizzy fabric paper.
2.) A bottle of glue
3.) A needle/paper piercing tool. I misplaced my needle tool so I made mine using a mini screw driver, it works just as well! 🙂
Continue rolling the tool toward the left, rolling over the fold as you go. At the same time, use your left hand to gradually bring the strip back down to a horizontal position. This might sound a little complicated at first but it’s really simple once you get the hang of it.
There ya go! Nothing to it! 🙂 If you want to make bigger rosettes using this technique you definitely can. Just make sure that the bigger roses that you make, the longer your fabric or paper strip has to be when you start out. I hope you enjoyed my tutorial! Have a great weekend!
