How to make rosettes..Trinkets Style

Old tattered vintage doilley

fold it in half

then roll it to a cigar shape

take the right end with your right hand and roll it in, making the bud/center of the flower....
 twist the doily with your left hand and keep turning the flower center until

it looks like a rosette.

Glue the end and add a teeny tiny bit of glue here and there to keep it together.

embellish and add the pin to the back.

I played with all kinds of material, trying to find which rosettes were easier to make and the doillies seem easier for me. What do you think?

I have never heard of making rosettes this way, but they look good. I'll have to try it.

Cute! And looks pretty easy. I picture that one you make with beads/pearls on a headband?

Now where were you when I had ALL those old tattered doilies before I got rid of them ... chuckle! This is a fabulous idea ...

Visited Anne & thought I'd pop by for a visit.

What a good use for old, torn doilies! Thank you for the idea - I'll try this with some of my trashy lace.

Oh that's a cute idea. Hate throwing those tattered doilies away so they just sit in a drawer. And the shabby roses are so "in style" now!
