More Ways To Use Rosette Dies

The other day, I shared some tips I’ve learned since I started using the Tim Holtz Sizzix rosette dies. Today, I wanted to show a few examples of other ways to use the rosette strip. What’s the point of a die cut tool if it’s not versatile?

Pleats

In this card, I used the rosette strip to create a pleated accent. Along every 3rd score mark or so, I folded a pleat. All the pleats go in the same direction. I adhered the pleats in place with some of Ranger’s 1/8″ Wonder Tape.

Curled Ends

For this second card, I created a curled detail on the rosette strip. Using the Scotch tape tip, I added some tape just along the top edge of the score marks. Instead of folding, I tore each score line up to the point where the tape is. I took a small pencil and curled the ends.

Don’t you love that you can get these different looks all from the same rosette die?

    • They are totally worth the $ — especially if you can get them at a big craft store with a coupon! 🙂
