Make a handmade paper rosette word banner to celebrate any occasion or person! A complete step-by-step tutorial.
Do you remember the fun Rosette Gift Topper I made a while back?
These paper rosettes are so much fun to make that I decided to make a banner using them!
My word banner says "create" because I am hanging it in my craft room, but you can make your word banner say ANYTHING you want it to!

I wanted the colors to coordinate with my yellow walls. I went through my supply of patterned scrapbook paper. This is the paper I chose, but I couldn't find the exact paper online.
Followed the simple instructions on debbie d's stamp studio to make the rosettes. I made one for each letter, so I needed 6 for the word CREATE.
Adding the Letters:
Cut the back circle with a 3 ½" circle die, then cut the next circle, a doily die. Then use the alphabet dies to cut your letters out of the pattern paper.
Cut a piece of vintage lace ribbon about 3 ½ inches long.
Tie a simple knot in the middle.
Hot glue the ribbon to the center of a doily circle.
Place foam mounting dots on the back of the letters so they will stick up a little.
Apply the letter to the center of the doily with the lace and press it into place.
To make the letter medallion stick out a bit from its rosette backing, place foam mounting dots on the back of the doily circle and place them on top of the circle, then hot glued the flat circle onto the rosette.
To string the letter rosettes together, place them face down on a table. For the word create, I placed them face down in this order E-T-A-E-R-C. You want them backwards so they will be in the right order when the banner is turned over.
Cut a length of twine longer than your banner, evenly space the rosettes apart, and place a dot of glue on the back of each rosette (one at a time). Then place the twine into the hot glue. Let the glue completely cool before turning the banner over.
Now the banner is ready to hang!
