This is a very easy tutorial where you make your own paper rosettes. I never knew why they sold them. Lazy people? Anyways, I know we all have lots of cardstock or scrapbooking paper that we should use up, and I have many 6×6 inch paper pads. You can also do it with a 12×12 inch paper pads but you only need one 1.5 inch x 12 inch strip. In this tutorial, I have two 1.5 x 6 inch strips.
Last Friday, I went on a day trip to Niagara Falls and went on many rides, visiting the Movieland Wax Museum, etc. It was fun! It was very hot though that being tan made me tanner and my skin was itchy. Wierd eh? Anywho, I made a traveler’s notebook because I had so many of those Sprocket HP images to print out and stick on. I only took pics on my phone of The Wax Museum. I have been to Niagara Falls many times, and we all know how the falls look like.
I wanted to use my collection of glass beads and a coaster for my desk. I love handmade things on my desk and I wanted to add to my repertoire of creative things. So I had burlap sheets and lots of cardboard pieces. I hope you like it. I am not creative with patterns and it was difficult to make sure they stay in their place on the simple design. I added a brown ribbon at the end to cover the edges. I think it looks great and clean.
