Valentine Rosettes

Hi everyone!  I hope you are having a wonderful day and staying warm.  It's been quite chilly here this past week.  Lucky for me, I got to stay home and craft today.  So while I was in my little craft room, I thought I would put together a quick, yet adorable project for you!

For these Valentine Rosettes, I used the Lifestyle Crafts Rosettes Die Set.  I know I've demonstrated rosettes on my blog before, but that was BEFORE these fabulous dies from Lifestyle Crafts.  I can't believe how much easier these are to put together!  I walk you through the entire process in the video below.

A few helpful hints for putting these little guys together...

*Hot glue works fabulously (because it dries so quickly).  No hot glue?  No problem.  Use a strong liquid glue and place something heavy on top to secure it while drying.

*You can hide the circle behind the rosette and embellish the middle with a button, felt shape, or other fun embellishment, or you can use the circle to your advantage, and create layers (like I did here).

*Try cutting the die cut strips to different widths to change the size of your rosette.

*You can make the rosette smaller or larger depending on how tight you squeeze your center while assembling.

*Attach them to cards, boxes, gift bags, pens, lollipop sticks or treat bags, or stick them in centerpieces for fast and fabulous embellishments!

*Changing the embellishment in the center can completely change the look and feel of these rosettes.  Use hearts, cupcakes, numbers, monograms, Easter eggs, shamrocks, buttons, pumpkins, leaves, candy canes (you get the picture)...and use them all year long!
