Now how cute is that? I actually cut the designer paper, Holly Berry Bouquet, 2 strips 12 X 2, scored them every 1/4" and then accordion folded them, attached them at each end to form a circle, pressed the circle down and adhered it to a 1 3/8" round circle with the Tombow multipurpose glue. Using my digital studio, I made sure I made the photo to fit a 1 3/8" circle punch. I also adhered the mica flakes to the rosette by using the same Tombow multipurpose glue. Once dry I adhered the photo to the top. I then cut out the two underneath pieces by using the scallop square duo (the larger of the two squares) using the silver glimmer paper. Using the grid paper, I attached them together to form the look you see above. I attached the velvet stitched ribbon over the two of them with a silver glimmer brad. I then adhered the finished rosette to the silver glimmer paper using the glue and let it dry.
My only dilemma now is I would love to seal it, but am unsure of how to do this. With the mica flakes I cannot use the Mod Podge. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. I would like for it to last for years to come. And, now I have to get the other one done for my other daughter.
Here is a close up!
Thanks for looking and hope you have a wonderful Monday and week!
