I started out to make little paper rosette flowers for cards or accents on different projects. Glori Winders has a wonderful tutorial showing how to make them. You can find it HERE.
Then I thought I'd try layering them with the different sizes. These Rosette Flower Picks all measure about five inches.
Then they were too big for cards. So I mounted them on wooden skewers.
I used different papers from Graphic 45 collections. For the butterflies on this pick I used a Martha Stewart punch.
The music notes on the yellow paper are made with a strip of decorative tape by Tim Holtz. I added that on before scoring the rosette.
The bees are cut out characters from the internet. I size them in photoshop, reverse the image, cut them out and glue them together. They are mounted on 16 gauge wire. See earlier posts on my blog for more details.
These butterflies are made using the same Martha Stewart punch. The center is a glass bead that is flat on one side. The white doily is a simple store bought paper doily.
The doily on this pick is a Thinlits die from Sizzix by Tim Holtz. The center is decorated with a cluster of tiny flowers made with the Tiny Tattered Florals Thinlits die from Sizzix by Tim Holtz.
And here's the Rosette Flower Picks in action. I put a couple in a flower arrangement on my dining table.
