How to Make Paper Rosettes Backdrop

Spring is officially here and I’m ready for some colorful parties! I hope you are too. Hi, it’s Amber from Damask Love. Today, I’m giving you a step-by-step tutorial on how you can take a few sheets of 12×12 paper and turn them into paper rosettes that are party perfect. Jo-Ann carries a ton of paper crafting supplies and with just a few basics you can create this beautiful backdrop. Warning: Once you start making paper rosettes, you’ll never want to stop! Let’s get started!

You’ll need:
• A Paper Trimmer – I LOVE this one
• A Scoring Tool – I recommend this one
• 12×12 Paper Packs – I used this one and this one
• A large circle paper punch
• A scallop edge punch

The FlipSide paper pack features a TON of colors that you can choose from and they have a different color on each side which means we can create double-sided rosettes.

1. You’ll need two sheets of 12×12 paper for each rosette.

7. The last step is to create a center. Use the paper punch to punch two circle and adhere on each side of the finished rosette.

Here’s a fun optional tip! Before forming the rosette, punch the edge of the scored paper with a scallop edge punch! This will give your finished rosette a pretty decorative edge.

Once you’ve made your first rosette, you’ll definitely want to make more! I was able to create a beautiful party backdrop and I still have plenty of paper left over for other crafts!
