I love “accidentally” finding new techniques to try. I am always on the lookout for fun and simple projects to make hybrid and when I found this simple one, I knew I had to give it a whirl.
- Having a Laugh kit by Karen Lewis
- Scoring Tool
- Scalloped Punch
- Circle Punch
My son had bought a container full of jelly beans and I told him not to throw away the container. I love being able to reuse something. So I took out my tape measure to determine how much paper was needed to wrap around it. I then designed my paper and added a couple of extra embellishments to print off.
Once everything was printed, I was ready to make my rosette. I have a Uchida Large Scallop Circle Punch, it punches 2 inch scallops. So I punched out two shapes.
The second one, I folded my punch. This also creates a crease.
I found scoring it to be easier as I wanted all my creases to be between the scallops. Once this is done, you will take a pair of scissors and cut a slit to the center.
Now, take your punch with all the score lines and accordion fold it. See – aren’t you glad you have those creases now? 😉 Once that is done, you can fan out your flower.
Do the same thing to the second punch and then adhere the two punches together. (I apologize for not having a picture for this step, I got excited once it turned out so nice that I just kept going.) I added a small punched out circle to the back and added my label to the top of my rosette. Below is what it should look like when complete.
I added my rosette to the lid and put some candy inside my container.
Now I have a sweet little candy container to sit on my desk.
