Paper Rosette Corsage

 To show your mothers your appreciation this coming Sunday, a paper corsage made from our Threaded Rosettes SVG, may be the perfect solution. Not only do they last a lot longer than regular corsages, but you can use your own creativity, with various scrapbook paper, colors and embellishments to make them unique for that special someone in your life.

Just begin by cutting the rosette out with your favorite digital cutter. I used Threaded Rosette10 and inside 20. After you get done folding them simply thread with thin jewelry wire. Small jewelry pliers work great for twisting the wires together to get as tight as hold as possible. When both pieces are made, insert the wire of the top piece through the center of the bottom piece.

Using the single leaf from How Tweet it Is SVG, you you can do one of two things, merge two leave together before cutting or cut two leaves and and then glue together as shown. I cut out a hole to pull the wire from the rosettes through. Then used a glue gun to secure the leaves to the rosette. Wrap the stems around the wire and glue.

To finish the corsage off, take a coordinating ribbon and wrap around the wire. Feel free to add additional ribbon or embellishments. Have fun, personalize and get creative! Right now get our Rosette  and How Tweet it Is SVG's at half off! Hurry offer ends next Thursday!
