Rita Barakat Christmas Hop

It's Christmas time! Rita Barakat and company have created a variety of Christmas projects that are sure to inspire you.

I created a few layered rosettes to decorate a gift bag  or to top off wrapped Christmas boxes. A fun alternative to bows.

I used Rita's A Merry Little Christmas die cut collection.

To make the rosettes, I used two strips of paper measuring 2" wide x 12" long. I scored each strip at every 1/2".
Glue the ends to make a large ring.

Next, cut a 2" circle add glue and flatten the ring and gather into the center to form a rosette. Holding the rosette by the center, quickly adhere the prepared 2" circle of glue to the backside of the rosette. Hold in place until the glue dries.

Add your favorite die cut to the center of the rosette.

I added a scallop circle to the backside or you can layer another larger rosette on the bottom.

These gift topper rosettes were so much fun to create and they came together so quickly. Give them a try.

Please continue hoping with us. There's an amazing prize to be won. Get all the details on how to win at Rita's blog.
