|While working on my rosettes for the swap I thought I would show ya'll a very easy no sew way to make them.|
|You will need double edge wired ribbon, glue, scissors and a small bit of felt.|
Pull the second wire together just like you did the first side, tie it ...pull the wire through the small hole to the back, leaving one in the front if you want to attach a bead or pearl to it. Repeat this with the 12" length pulling all the wires to the back.Once your have both lengths pulled and tied, add your bead or pearl to the smaller rosette, slip the bead on the wire and then pull the wire through to the back, place the rosette on top of the larger one, pull the wires through the hole in the larger one, tie them off. Clip them to about 2" at this time, wind them in a small circle and flatten them down. Add glue around the felt and smush it over the wire and onto the rosette. VIE OH LAH !
You can cut the lengths longer if you like..experimenting is the fun part ! I am having SUCH a TIME with this "new" way of adding photos and text ... I have "lost" the photos and text three times ! So, if you have any questions for me please email me or ask them here and I will be happy to try and explain it better...I'm afraid to try to clarify in this post because I don't want to lose it all again (())
