You know I love Rosettes and they are very on trend right now. Brandin wasn't so sure about them, but I knew I could make them look great and in a form she would like. I want to have the flexibility to use them to cover a large amount of wall space or hang from the ceiling so I know I need to make a bajillion.
I started with collecting the scrapbook papers and cardstock. Keep in mind, I don't have access to a local scrapbook store anywhere near me so I had to shop online. This is always a little scary as it is hard to know exactly what the colors really are when you only have an image on a computer monitor. I lucked out and bought a lot of Rhonna Farrer's collection with Pink Paislee called Christmas Junque. I have all of the papers in the digital form, so I had an idea of what the colors would look like.
Scrapbook.com had a huge selection of Christmas Junque on sale for $0.10/ sheet of the 12x12 double sided cardstock. Is it the best idea though? Hmmm lets see...
- Large number of sheets available…check
- Confident I know the true colors of the paper and they match beautifully to wedding colors….check
- Christmas Paper…what? In June?
- Can I use the other side of the paper?
- Can I get enough use of the paper without using the portion of the paper with the motif?
- Once the paper is accordion folded, is it even possible to tell if the design is more "visions of sugar plums" and less "I DO"?
- Can I cover the holly leaf or the "pretty little girl in the red coat with the white fur trim" with add embellishments (photos coming later)?

|Cricut Ribbons & Rosettes Provo Craft|
If you have purchased Cricut cartridges you know the prices can vary depending on where you get it so I am listing Provo's Cricut Shop price. The cartridge is available for $49.99 or through Craft Studio for $31.99.
You can cut the rosettes, borders-in several sizes and designs, a single motif and it's shadow, and a frankly odd alphabet with holes in it. Above you see a sample page from the booklet that comes with the cartridge. Isn't that alphabet odd?
|The cartridge doesn't lack for variety as you can see.|
There will be a tutorial on how to make the rosettes in the near future.
Have a great Weekend.
