on to my TUTORIAL for the day...
don't you just LOVE embellishments that you can create all from supplies you already have stashed in your craft room?
we'll  i've got one for ya today...
paper rosettes!

is it too early for halloween? 
typically i wouldn't even THINK about halloween quite yet...but i found some fun halloween inspiration as i was blog surfing and decided to make some treat bags.

they are SUPER easy and can be made with ANY SIZE paper...
really all you need is
but i wanted to add in some {ippity}.
let's get started...
cut 3 stips of paper -
here i have used 2 x 5" strips cut from a paper bag.
i then STAMPED each one with dots for sure
 for my treat bag today i am just making a small one...
but like i said, you can make them ANY size you like.

i wanted my embellishment to have a vintage "distressed" look,
so i added some tim holtz distress ink...

fold each one "accordian" style

then FOLD each one in half to get a nice crisp fold
add hot glue {or adhesive of your choice} to the center
and press each side together to adhere
my little tip...the hot glue works awesome because it dries so fast!

add more glue to one of the ends...

adhere two of them together...
then add the 3rd one.

add more adhesive...
and then "close" the rosette so that it forms a full circle.

 add any coordinating embellishments
for the PERFECT finishing touch!

i also used the journal box from that's creepy

oh AND i ran my little paper bag through my cuttlebug to
give the bag a more vintage look...
and, well, just to add a little character.

SO, what do you think...
do you see PAPER ROSETTES in your craftin' future?

THAT was a FUN hop today...
