Burst of Color
Topic: Techniques

I've been seeing handmade flowers everywhere on the net and some of them look like a rosette. I had a brilliant notion to try using the paper crimper on strips of paper to see if I could replicate some. This is what I came up with.

I think it went pretty well. I did find that you have to go back over the entire strip and sharpen the creases do it will flatten into a medallion. But using the crimper to set those creases to begin with is a giant head start.

I used scraps from the paper weaving projects and then combined them to make a card.

I think I will change out the text sticker to something else as this doesn't seem to resonate with these images.
