Make Your Own Rosettes

On the back page of our June issue, we featured these super simple gifts by Lisa Storms. The rosette-photo bottle toppers got a lot of oohs and aahs here in the office, so I wanted to share with you how you can make your own.

Remember this page from the April issue? The rosettes used on both the layout and the bottle tops are very similar!

1. Cut a 12″ strip of paper. (The width is dependent on the diameter of your lid, but Lisa used 1-1/4″ strips for lids that were 2-5/8″ in diameter.) Score every 1/4″ and accordion fold.

2. Adhere the ends together.

3. Push the center down into a rosette. Adhere the piece to a punched circle in order to keep it in place. Add another circle on top with plenty of adhesive, and top with a photo punched into a circle.

  1. Thank you, thank you for posting this tutorial. I saw this in the magazine, but when I went to the link provided, it was broken, and I couldn’t get the instructions. Love this project, and can’t wait to try it!
    Thanks again…

  2. I love this rosette, I had to make it once I saw it. Thanks for the instructions.

  3. There is not enough information for a beginner, this does not explain how to complete the rosette at all, I can make a rosett using more that one sheet and gluing them together but no way this turns into whats on top of the jars or in the picture

  4. Thanks for your feedback, Martha! What other information would be helpful? I’m happy to answer any questions about how to make the rosettes.

  5. Thank you so much for the tutorial it was pretty helpful. Question, where did you find those perfect little jars? TFS!

  6. Those are actually jelly jars. After all of the jelly was gone, Lisa washed them and removed the labels. (So easy and budget friendly!)
