Old Fashioned Rosette

Cut/tear a strip of thin card/paper about 11.25 inches long x 1.5 inches wide. score across the strip at quarter inch intervals all the way down the strip then make alternate valley and mountain folds all the way along.  Stick the two ends together.  

Draw round a 2p piece on spare thin card/paper twice and cut out both circles.

** Back to the folded strip and gather in the pleats and holding the top of the pleats push down on a flat surface and it will go into a rosette shape.  

Now for the tricky bit: keep the rosette flat whilst applying glue to the previously cut out circles.  Stick one circle on top of the rosette over the centre.  Carefully turn rosette over and stick the other circle over the middle.

At this point I slid the whole thing under a heavy duty two hole punch to keep it all together until the glue dried Exclamation  Laughing

**Tim's video makes this bit look really easy Laughing

Thanks Mickie. Think I might need to try a glue gune like Sir T  Wink

Glue gun would be good to use Vonny.  I have just dug mine out again  Laughing

Becky I am sorry to hear that it didn't work.  If it was the pushing down to form the circle bit that failed, then watch Tim's video to get the technique.  That is the really fiddly part and if you have a glue gun, as Vonny suggests, it is much easier.

PS Better still, do what I will do as soon as I can.  Get the Rosette die  Laughing  Laughing
Jennie

Even with the die, the most difficult bit is the getting it stuck down as it flips out very easily.  You need three/four hands  Laughing  Laughing

Must be an easier way (not that I've tried yet). How about if the paper was cut in a curve or part of a cone first (thinking of the pleated lampshades that you get).
Mickie

Back in the day when we were making concertina pleated lampshades, the fabric wasn't cut on a curve.   Laughing   They were such a fiddle though.  Much preferred to make Tiffany lampshades Exclamation
