DIY Paper Rosettes

A co-worker is getting married this weekend and we wanted to make sure she came into work on her last day before she preps for the big day to be a festive one. I decided to make her different sizes of the paper rosettes that would be hanging over her desk.

A very simple and fun way to add to any occasion!!!

Materials I used:

- Paper Source's Fuschia and Curry Roll Wrapping Paper - this works great so you can get different sizes and the color is solid on both sides.
- Tape - I would recommend Super Tacky Tape
- Scissors
- Fishing line or ribbon


1. I folded 3 sheets of the same size about 1 inch fold the turn it around and fold again until you have folded the whole sheet of paper. Keep it folded then fold that piece in half to make a fan. Repeat this for the next 2 sheets.

2. I then apply tape to edges of the fan and attach them together. At this point you can attach your ribbon between two fans so that you can hang them. I wanted to have my hang with fishing line so I went ahead and taped them all together and just used a 1/4 inch hole punch and tied the fishing line to the rosette.

Then, you are done!!! Here are my final rosettes!

Paper Source has instructions as well! Enjoy!
