Paper Rose - ettes!

I was playing with my new rosette die from Tim Holtz tonight, I had intended to use them on the tag from my WOYWW earlier, with the adirondack sprays, but as they were drying on my craft sheet (well, as the glue was drying) I had an idea......

I have had a spool kit for a while which I haven't used yet - indeed, I still haven't because I thought I could make my own.... cue rummaging around for something suitable. I came across a piece of corrogated cardboard which i sprayed with the purple twilight spray - oh, YUMMY colour! and......

 added some tissue tape at the top and bottom
They look like wheels really, but....
Added some lilac spotty ribbon
Wrapped some pretty fibre round it...
And tried very hard to take a decent picture of it!!    Just a bit of fun for a cold Wednesday evening!
I love how easy this rosette die was to use - so much easier than the one I hand folded for the Timmy tag last week!  (didn't have to measure each little crease for a start...) I can see I will be using this lots. And maybe I'll even finish the tag!

It's fun playing with that die, isn't it? And think of how many we can make from all that beautiful paper we've been hoarding, I mean, buying.... lol! Looks great, Helen!
