How to make a paper rosette

Rosette red valentine heart flower tutorial
  I love these rosettes not only for scrapbook pages but are adorable in bunches or alone on a gift bag. They can be made with any card stock and even sprayed with my counterfeit glimmer mist for a little glam. You can make these in just minutes using border punches for a scalloped look or just a straight cut.
What you need:
- Card stock cut into long 12" strips. The larger and longer the strip the larger the rosette. Here I used 1 inch strips.
- .50" to 1" circle punch
- Center embellishment such as buttons.
- Hot glue gun
- Craft glue or glue stick

Rosette red valentine heart flower tutorialI used Martha Stewart Embossed Trefoil Heart Edge Punch Cloudy Edger Craft 42-40020, punched both sides of the strip, overlapped ends to form circle and glued.
