Teacher Appreciation Day!

Greetings, fellow paper people! While I know that I've been away for a bit (life, job, etc.), I have a crop coming up and I'm teaching a class on making rosettes - the quick and easy way!

This rosette is for all those who willingly give their time, effort, money, emotion, and all those other things that take up too much time to type.  Love you guys!!!

Anyway, I used a few simple tools to make this rosette.  I'll give you the recipe below the picture . . .
I used scrap paper (again) and made the rosette and the top layer out of scraps as well.  After I cut the paper, I scored it and punched it using my Martha Stewart Gothic Arches punch.

I adhered and put it together using two 1 1/4 chipboard circles I cut out of - yes, scrap chipboard.  I cut two pieces of ribbon from ribbon I got from Hobby Lobby on sale.  I used hot glue to adhere everything together and then attached a pin on the back.  I stamped the notebook paper, embossed the sentiment, and stickled the "A+".  Whatcha think?  I love it!  Here's the recipe:

1. 1 five in. piece of scrapbook paper, scored at every 1/2 inch
2. Punch both long sides of paper, beginning at the center in order to line up punch design.
3. Three 1 1/4 in. chipboard circles
4. Two pieces of ribbon cut to desired length.
5. Verve stamp (notebook paper) which can be found here http://shopverve.com/
6. Perfectly Clear Stamps (Teachers Rule! and A+) which I've had for awhile and can't find anywhere (sorry!)
7. Black ink, black embossing powder, and red stickles

I found out how to make the rosettes on youtube.  It's not difficult.  Just go there and type in "paper rosettes".  I haven't graduated to videos yet, or I'd make one on camera.  But really, it's not hard - really.

Thanks for looking.  Remember, gotta love it! (life, scrapping, and paper crafting that is)  :)))
