Folded paper rosettes are very popular right now. They are available for purchase in most craft stores, or you can make your own using the many tutorials available on the web. They are often embellished with some sort of button or charm in the center, but I thought it would be fun to add quilling instead.
My good friend Sharon has many of the paper crafting tools now available. The other day I dropped by and she used a Tim Holz die to cut some rosette strips for me. The die perforates the fold lines making it super easy to get perfect accordion folds.
I quilled a black cat, added green crystal eyes, and glued it to the center of my rosette. I used it as the focal point of a Halloween card made from more decorative paper included in the Midnight Spell matstack I purchased last year.
These paper rosettes are a great way to add a touch of quilling to any paper project.
