A homemade do-it-yourself inspired by The Celebration Shoppe.
This project was used to make a Memory Keepsake Box for my sister’s bridal shower! (Directions for that project are soon to follow, or go to my site.)
Fold the desired length of crepe paper into an accordion.
Curve the accordion shape around into a circle. You may find that you will have to spread the pleats carefully with your fingers. This may take several attempts.
Close the circle with a touch of hot glue.
Cover the center of the rosette with a pretty button, a large bead, or a printed rosette piece.
For a three dimensional look, to a two dimensional object such as the Memory Box, glue a sewing machine bobbin to the bottom. (For glue, use a brush with mod podge or Elmer's to reinforce the bobbin.)
Embellish with strands of beads and ribbon.
