Homemade With A Hop!!!

** Blog hop is now closed **

Welcome to your 2nd stop of 10 on Stamping Vacation's first blog hop:
Homemade with a HOP!
This blog hop starts September 25th at 9 a.m. and ends September 26th at 9 p.m. (US Central time) We're focusing on different homemade embellishments for paper crafting and we have a long list of incredible prizes available to be won on every single blog!
On this blog we have a stamp set (winner's choice) from Practicing Creativity Designs AND 2 separate $10 gift certificates to RubberStamp Ave. up for grabs!! PLUS, one grand prize winner will receive a gift certificate to the place of their choice for $5-$50 depending on how many blogs they've commented on! There are 10 blogs to hop on so you can win up to a $50.00 gift certificate to the place of YOUR choice! So be sure to comment on every blog AND become a follower of Stamping Vacation ! In case you get lost along the way a full list of prizes and blog hop stops can be found HERE.

** I would love it too if you became a follower of my blog but that is optional....only follow if you want to! And if you become a follower or are already one don't forget to check out my New Store Candy HERE!

Now for my project! Today I am going to show you how to make a rosette!

Supplies: Scoring board/tool, strip of paper 1" x 12", 2 circles...I used my nesties... about 1" (one of these will be for the top so you want to make sure it matches your paper), and glue.
** You could also make a smaller rosette using a 3/4" x 10" strip of paper which I have shown on my card below **


Take your strip of paper and score it every 1/4". I used my Martha Stewart Scorboard which I LOVE!


Then do an accordian fold which is just folding back and forth along the score lines which looks like the photo above.


Next you will want to glue your two ends together to make a loop.


Then tip the loop inward so your design that you want to show is facing on the outside like shown in the picture. Put a big dot of fast drying glue on the bottom circle you want to use and adhere together. I usually hold the rosette together and push down until the glue is dry...or you can use something to weigh it down like scissors. If you don't do this the loop will just pop off the circle and roll back up.



The last thing you will need to do is glue the top circle onto your rosette and voila!! A beautiful embellishment to use on your projects!!

Here are two examples of how you can use rosettes on your cards:

This first card is done by the very talented Courtney Baker!! Which is also one of our sponsors for the blog hop! I just love the textures and colors she has chosen...so pretty!! You can check out the stamp sets she used from her store HERE!


The card below is mine using a digi image given to me from another one of our sponsors and that is Prairie Fairy! As soon as I saw this image I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do! I thought about a sunshine rosette shining down on this beautiful image!!



Your next stop on our hop is Merrymade Cards and Crafts where she will be giving away not 1 but 2 gift certificates ($25 each) to the Sticker Store AND a £ 10 gift voucher for Lili Of The Valley.

Don't forget to comment for a chance to win!! If you don't have a blog, be sure to leave your email address so we can reach you. Winners will be announced on September 28th!

Thanks for hopping by and a special thank you to ALL our sponsors for this entire hop!!

Okay this has to be the best blog hop ever! Not only are you hopping around seeing wonderful blogs and leaving comments for prizes, but you get to see techniques for homemade embellishments. Which if your as frugal, ie broke, as me, you are always on the lookout for. This rosette is lovely and easy and I cannot wait to try it out for myself.

Danielle said...

Terrific job, Stacie! Love your rosettes! The cards are wonderful! My fav is the first one. The colors are just awesome! Your instructions are so well written that I think even I can follow them! :) Beautiful work!

Love these -

Thanks so much for sharing your creativity.

Joanne Gilch said...

I have tried this rosette B4 but I wasn't making my strip as narrow. I think you have solved my problem. Mine were just too big and I couldn't manage to get them to stay flat no matter how much glue and sticky tape I used. Love both of the cards. glad I don't have to choose between yours and Courtney's.

Annmaree said...
