Hello Everyone! When I saw the new Cricut cartridge Ribbons & Rosettes, I fell in LOVE!! I wanted to see if I could make rosettes using the Martha Stewart border punches. You could also use your gypsy to make them. The Martha Stewart Cake cartridges have some really nice borders that would work or you could design your own using your gypsy. I have put together a tutorial on how I did them with the MS border punches.
First cut your paper to your desired size. My paper measures 2 1/2 x 12. Depending on how big you want your rosette, will determine how many strips you will need to make. I used 2 strips to make this rosette. So you will want to cut 2 strips at 2 1/2 x 12 to make the rosette in this tutorial.
After you make 2 of the strips, you will want to glue the end together. Now you will need to gather the rosette together so you have a small hole in the middle. This takes a little patience. Be careful not to tear the border that you punched. I punched a small circle and glued to the back to hold it together. I would recommend using hot glue to glue the circle. I tried my atg glue gun and it didn't work well so I used hot glue and it seemed to work great.
