I almost forgot about this one so I am adding it between the Sunday post and the regular BIG CARD one.
I was thinking about the layout I did a while back with the rosettes.
At the time I made it, I had the idea to trim off part of the die-cut, to make the rosette smaller, without having to resort to scoring and creasing one by hand (one that would not have the cute scalloped edge like the die-cut one.) Of course if I had taken a moment to really LOOK at it I would have realized that cutting off the side meant the whole thing basically fell apart. It was bugging me, as things sometimes do, and while I had a roll of Washi tape on my desk it gave me an idea!
I die cut the rosette, then trimmed off about 1/2 inch from the non-scalloped side.
I stuck a line of Washi tape along the cut edge then folded it over to the back.
Crease and fold as normal. The tape is a little thicker, so really you HAVE to use hot glue to stick it all together – it will spring open if you don’t!
Here you can see it in relation to the normal die-cut rosette….
and here on top of a 2″ punched circle, just to give you an idea. I think with various Washi tape/patterned paper combos you could come up with some really cute ones.
