Rosette Making

I cut a circle out of card, then with a compass drew a line about ¼ if an inch from the edge. I set my machine to a zig-zag, then attached the ribbon, making pleats as I went. I have miles of this Genuine Hungarian ribbon (not sure why though!)

I lined up the 2nd row of ribbon with the stripes of the first, but there is no reason you couldn't line another row up with a drawn circle. I attached the 'tails' with this layer.

I cut a circle of paper, a circle of felt and a button. With a Glue stick I assembled them and sewed the button on to secure them all. The threads from sewing the button were left on so that I could attach the rosette. Easy - we should all be decorated!
