My good friend and stamping buddy, Lana, gifted me with these two paper flowers. She said she has a die that does all the scoring and scallop edging for her. I dawned on me that it has been a lot of years since I made these so I thought I would show you how to make them without a die.
There seems to be a lot of different names for this folded paper flower - paper rosette, fan fold flower, fan fold medallion, accordion paper flower, are some that I have seen. Regardless of what it is called, it is pretty simple to make. I came across this layout on Pinterest and really liked it. I made very slight changes to make it fit my folded paper flower.
I cut the DSP I” x 10” and scored every ¼” from the wrong side for this flower.
I folded it like an accordion. Once I persuaded it into a circle, I adhered a 1-3/8” circle covered in glue to the wrong side.
Flip the flower to the right side and fill the hole with glue – I do think a Hot glue gun would be quicker to use for this part. Hold until the glue starts to set.
Then set a heavy object on top of the rosette to weigh it down while the glue cures – I used my external hard drive and my coffee cup!
Finished it off with a tiny die and a pearl.
The banner was cut at 1-3/4” x 4-3/4”.
Once I die cut the flourish, I cut it apart as I wanted about another ½” spread from it.
And, of course, a matching envelope.
I decided I would make a Thank You card for Lana using one of her folded paper flowers she gave me.
I received an exchange card from a good stamping friend that I’ve known probably for ten years but have never met, Madge. Stampin Up! claims there is ‘no shame in copying’ so I copied Madge’s - I loved the layout of her card!
