Shabby Rosette

This is my version of the Tim Holtz Paper Rosette.

Instead of using the Sizzix Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die, I cut a strip of his Big Rulers paper & cut one edge using a pair of deckle edged scissors.

Using the grid lines printed on the back (Thank you Tim!) I lightly scored each line, then folded them in alternate directions.

I punch out a circle using a Woodware paper punch to create the centre, adhering it to a circle of mountboard to give it structure.

I lightly sanded the edges to add a little shabby distress to the rosette.

It might not be as quick as using his die, but it didn't take too long.
