Happy Friday! I heart rosettes...

I love paper rosettes.  They add so much dimension and wow factor to simple every day projects.  They are especially stunning on banners, in my opinion anyways! :)

For this banner baby girl requested pink and blue.  I have this beautiful hand made paper that I have had in my stash for quite awhile.  It's very fibrous and I cannot use it on my cutting machines, but it is perfect for rosettes!  This particular paper has glitter and stitching in it!  I just love it.  I simply scored and cut the 12 x 12 paper into 12 x 3 strips.  Each rosette used two strips.  So the finished banner is HUGE, each rosette is 6" wide...

I used my Cricut for the letters and other cuts.  The font is from the Storybook cartridge, the banner and the decorative base for it was cut on Art Philosophy, two of my favorite cartridges, and the other cuts, I sadly cannot remember which cartridges.

Here are some closeups of the pretty paper!  

I hope you enjoyed today's project and have a fabulous weekend!!!
I am SO excited to get to some holiday projects this weekend! Yay!
