HALLOWEEN PAPER ROSETTE



So I have been trying to participate on some challenges around the blogs and I made it to the Peachy Keen Blog and this is my project for them.


Halloween Paper Rosette
 You might know how to make them already and they are pretty easy to work with.

I used a My Mind's Eye Halloween stack for the base. I cut from it  2 strips: 12 inches long by 2.5 and scored it at every 3/4 inch. I then proceeded to ink them, punched the border, folded it accordion style,  glue the two strips together at both ends. I had punched a circle and using my glue gun AGAIN, lol, put a big glob of glue in the center and arranged my accordion flower on top of it. You have to work a bit faster on this step and you have to get your fingertips burned too like I did, lol. it is part of the process, lmbo.

 Do you see the beautiful texture on the hat? 
 This is my first time using my Fiskars embossing plates and using my new but old Big Shot, lol and using my never touched before Core-dinations stack. I embossed the little hat that I cut from Paper Dolls and embossed it and sanded it. I read somewhere that if you mist the cardstock first when using the Fiskars plates you will get a deeper embossing. I did just that and you can see how nice it came out. Now, if I could just  find my Sizzix plates too but couldn't find them today. Who knows where I put them the last time I re-organized. lol
I hand cut the star and stamped with a Peachy Keen stamp.  I used my glitter pens but it was hard to get a photo of it.

The tiny stars on the brim of the hat are punched from a cheapy set I have that I normally used more than not when I want something small like it.

I guess you can add a hair pin to it or some other kind of pin on the back but I used a craft wire to hang it around the house and added some ribbon to it.

Hope you like it amd if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask or send me an email.

Beautiful job with the hat and star! Love that cute lil' PK face! I know what you mean about not being able to find things after you keep reorganizing them! Lovely rosette and it is a great idea for a fun halloween decoration!
