Make your own embellishments that can be uses in various projects like paper crafts, home decoration projects, fashion bags, gift wrapping and more. It is easy to make them using canvas and satin as main fabrics and add lace or ribbons and decorate with a cameo or other embellishments. The fabrics have the desired design by stamping them with your favorite stamps and ink pads. For these rosettes, Memento Luxe Rich Cocoa is used matching the ivory colored fabrics. The rosettes are glued on Sheet Metal (round) from Imagine that make the ideal base to be placed on many surfaces.
Time: 30 minutes
Cut 1 ½ inch wide and 15 inch long stripes of canvas and satin fabric and stamp them with the Memento Luxe Rich Cocoa in a repeating pattern.
Take a 1.25 diameter Sheet Metal circle and start gluing the canvas fabric in a circular way creating pleats.
Repeat the same with the satin fabric.
Use a tea light candle wrinkle the satin fabric on edges.
Take a small piece of the satin fabric and distress with the help of a sponge dauber and the Memento Luxe Rich Cocoa. Cut circles and repeat the previous step.
Make layers of lace and fabric by gluing to the center of the rosettes. Decorate with cameo and metallic embellishments.
Place cuttings of the Tear It Tape (double-sided tape) at the back side of the metal circles to easily attach to projects. (Or use the hole and back of the pleats to sew onto other fabrics.)
