Okay.. to start this project you need to pull out your punches. Different punches make different style rosettes. The video says to cut 1 inch strips but I went from 1-2 inches and in between for different sizes as well. These are the punches I chose. I'd pick ones that you think will make a "good" rosette. You'll get the hang of it after making one or two :-)
Here are the strips of paper after punching. As you can see I have different sizes, punches, and colors...
This is a blue piece of velum that I wanted to try out... I used the lace punch on this.
And here is my finished product!!!! Aren't they beautiful??? Of course, you can embellish your with whatever fits your style. I chose center pieces that matched the style of the rosette. I also chose to ink the edges of some and I added a white strip to the biggest one for a different effect. Watch the video below and give this a shot!!! You'll be surprised at how much fun these can be :-)
Oh, and this is just a better photo of the layout I already posted for my sister's album. The previous one was taken with flash as we had no sun here for a few days.. now that the sun is back, my camera is working full time!!! Thanks for stopping by guys! You rock :-)
Here is the link for the youtube video... Hope this works!!!!!
