Did you find that August just flew by? I can't believe it's already SEPTEMBER!! Boy, do I have to scurry!!
I've finally got my act together and will be posting my new workshops later today. I've been working hard on making samples and sometimes I tend to forget why I'm making them. One of my workshops will be on Halloween decorations. It was so popular last year that I will be repeating it. The most popular project were the rosettes/pinwheels wall decorations and the bunting rosettes/pinwheels (I call them rosettes, others call them pinwheels).
As I was making my rosette samples, I wondered if there was another way I can use these decorations. I know that the concept can easily be transformed for any holiday or occasion - just fold away and glue, right? But what else besides wall decorations, bunting or garlands can I make?
Why not a Christmas or holiday tree! This idea was inspired by those little trees made of squares of paper. They were all over the web a year or so ago.
This one is from our lady Martha. But I could never seem myself cutting up all those itsy bitsy pieces of paper. I don't have that long an attentions span!! Could I do this with rosettes and would it be easier?? A good question.
Et voilà ! Here is what I did. It's a prototype and still has a few kinks. So I wouldn't have to make tons of rosettes, I simply added a small piece of 1/2-inch foam poster board between each rosette. Because I get bored easily I was happy enough to make each rosette while watching Escape to the Chateau, a Channel 4 British show now on CBC.
What do you think?
