These are a little tricky. Plenty of video tutorials on the web for these. They go by different names. medallions, accordion fold flowers, fan fold flowers. Here is a sample of two that I did tonight. I used the Martha Stewart border punches for the lace edges and splitcoast stampers tutorial.

Diana, I made one tonight without using the scoreboard. I just pinched the folds in 1/8 or 1/4" as you would do a fan. Just wanted to try it. The paper I used is cheap practice paper. I imagine you could use magazine paper, too. They are pretty when you punch the edges first. I love the samples on the web, though. With the smaller one, I attached a pin backing just for fun.

Here are some more. I noticed that Joanne's new products of Bigz dies will be selling the fan fold flowers in a die for $59.00. These are two simple. Scoreboard and a punch. All you need. You can even fold without a scoreboard.

This is done using the Martha Steward fringe scissors (purchased 4 years ago) and decided to use.

Eph429
09-21-2011, 06:38 PM
One of the rosettes was a Martha Stewart Deep punch daisy border (harder to score) and the other was single layer dotted scallop ms punch. Centers were made of calligraphy parchment and all adhered with Alene's glue. Pebble centers.

Gorgeous flowers. I have a pair of fringe scissors, only they weren't bought for me to craft with. A couple of years ago my mother bought them for me for Christmas as they were being sold as scissors to cut up your bills. They are a pain to use for that, though as you have to flatten your bill and only cut one layer at a time. When I saw them being sold as fringe scissors, I had to laugh as my mom would not have bought them for that, as she thinks I have enough craft supplies. LOL Is there ever enough?

As you can see, I have fallen in love with these rosettes. I've watched how others have done them on the internet. You can buy a bigz pro die for $59.00, or use a toy crimper from the dollar store. I like the ones taught on Splitcoast Stampers as it just requires one 12" strip, not two. Tonight, I saw some double deckers, and triple decker rosettes. They call them different names (wheels, medallions, fan fold flowers, accordion flowers, etc.); You can buy them ready made, or make your own, or buy the dies as sizzlits, or embossing folders--but they are all the same principle. I've seen them used as toppers for canning, or magnets, or embellishments for cards, also pins, hairband ornaments, and wreathes for Christmas or ornaments for the Christmas tree, or on stems for a floral bouquet. They've been around awhile it seems. They make a card pop and so I love them. My husband took a picture of the line-up before I gave them away. Here's the picture.

kaybee
09-24-2011, 07:14 PM
Very, very cute. Martha Stewart has them on her web site and calls them edge punched medallions. She uses her score board to make the folds and punches the edge of them.

kaybee
09-24-2011, 07:20 PM
I did a search for MS. Went to the one that said kids crafts and paper crafts. Went to crafts by technique, then went to punching and it was about three or four down.

The butterfly was from Prima, used a pearlized pink envelope, green metallic cardstock and top note die from SU. MS scoring board using 1/4 inch folds. SU scallop punch.

kaybee
09-25-2011, 02:24 PM
You really are a pro. Very beautiful card. Since I have an MS score board, I may have to give this a try. If I can do one half as beautiful as the one you just did on the card with the butterfly, I would be happy.

Diana Jones

The rosettes look like so much fun to make! I have several of the punches; bought them, didn't think I liked them much after I couldn't figure out how to use them when I like other ones better. The rosettes are the answer. With the folds it makes the plainer of the punches really cute! It does make the rosette look lacey and that is what I bought them for but likes the more intricate ones better for cards. Thanks for sharing everyone.

Oh and I went to the sites with the paper pop-ups and origami and loved it. Wow, I don't have time to create cards much less those grand art pieces!

Eph429
09-25-2011, 06:48 PM
Thank you for all your comments. I have my own critique on these fan folds. I tried it tonight with 1/8" and the flower became very flimsy and hard to lay down, plus it is hard to pinch even with the score lines. 1/8" is where there is a line on the score board, it got a score, so that is 96 scores in all! Also, the tutorials tell us to use designer paper rather than cardstock. Cardstock is nearly too heavy to deal with, although I've made a few with cardstock. I use the stylus purchased for another project - stencil embossing I think. It works better for these scores, and the kind that SU sells with their Simply Scored product. See example in this post. The center punch is made with a McGill punch (no name).

Susan you are becoming a pro at this :D Very pretty,

Thank you, Trudy, I want to use glitter on my next project and do some layering on the paper before I score. I go steady with a project til I run it into the ground. (As I did with the tri-shutter cards); I'll usually go back to them, but when I like something, I like to make alot of them before the inspiration flees. It is quick and easy for Christmas "gifts"

So that tells us, that rosettes are a craft sensation. It also explains why Bigz pro is selling their dies for $59.00 and Accucut for $70.00 and then there are sizzlit varieties and embossing plates and crimpers. Everyone is getting in the act.

I saw a tutorial on the giant version.

These rosettes were made with buttons that have the stem. By piercing the base, the stem fits in snugly. The buttons were part of the Christmas in July swap from the Judikin gals. I am trying to use materials from the swaps.

Yes, I have one granddaughter, 11 and she puts hers on the refrigerator. Hair barettes are a great idea. Has anyone ever put one in utee to give it a plasticized version, or clipped them to their sandals! I see putting diamond glaze on a couple and glittering up some more - the tutorials show them attached to sticks for a bouquet, intermixed with lollipops!

Eph429
09-27-2011, 03:14 PM
Since I've been working with so many, I get ideas. I am thinking of making my own die for the different distances. (for my own personal use) I prefer the 1/4" the best. 1/8" makes the paper too flimsy. In Florida, it gets humid and scoring is even easier.

Eph429
09-27-2011, 06:29 PM
If people could make their own embossing folders, I wonder how successful it would be in making own die. I thought of using hot glue in the process as my template. I've become pretty good at scoring, may stick with that.

kaybee
09-27-2011, 07:19 PM
In the top group photo, on the yellow, orange and pink rosette, and in the bottom photo, all three yellows is that a punch flower on top of them? You could put smaller ones on a stick as a cupcake topper or the larger ones as a cake topper. You could even just lay it flat on the cake. Or you could make placecards.

kaybee
09-27-2011, 07:26 PM
You could also make a garland out of orange and black or purple for Halloween or a Christmas garland out of red and green.

Eph429
09-28-2011, 04:27 AM
To the woodworking shop, I'm asking them to make grooves for a steel rule die. Once the shallow grooves are made, I plan to embed wire with a thin stripe of hot glue. Then, I plan to roll out the scored marks with the rolling pin on a firm foam padded surface that Posh Impressions used to sell. Where I live, there is a lot of reasons to give, and these little posies have a way of bringing delight to my 90 year old friends -- who by the way, are learning to make them, too.

This is readily available, portable, and easy and quick to use.

Today I got Martha Stewart on bing and they brought up literaly thousands of sites. Some were stores, but a lot were blogs. Thay had one blog that had an angel made from paper with MS punches at the bottom. I am trying to find the tutorial now. I could see that the skirt could be folded, much like the rosettes. When I find the info, Iwill let you all know.

Eph429
09-29-2011, 09:10 AM
I have seen the paper like cloth (hybrid versions) in women's vests and really look stunning with rhinestones as centers or buttons, or an embellishment cluster on berets.

They remind me of the yo-yo's that were popular some time ago. I still love the yo-yo's. I guess that is why I am so fond of this fan fold flowers.

Around Christmas time, they make nice wreathes, too.

Those who have requested samples, have pm'ed me and I love sharing my work.

So looking forward to the embellishment swap! If you've never signed up for a swap, this is a great first.

Thank you, Kay for going back to the site and locating how to get there. Navigation through some of these websites can be complicated. After I found your website, I noted the final link and put it here as a reference to go back to. Thanks for your great help and taking an interest in these fan folds. They've been out for about 3 years I understand, and I am just becoming aware of them. If there is a big enough demand, some of the paper companies may come out with pre-scored papers! Or Crimper manufacturers with wider spaced grooves, or embossing folders.

There is a new CB embossing folder (called dominoes) that has lines that would score (with a domino pattern)

I also checked the Judikins website for projects on the fan fold tutorial.

Eph429
10-07-2011, 05:05 PM
This is a little harder to make in my opinion. I prefer the 1/4" creases. My husband likes them better, too. What is nice about these rosettes is that you can add your own center or embellishment for a more 3-d look. I like to put magnets on the back of mine. At Christmas, I will put eyelets and hang them on a tree with a pretty ribbon, or a child's picture in the center.

I broke down and bought a fan fold die by MB. Nice thing about this die in their tutorial, you don't have to have extender plates - which run up the expense. You just turn it around. However, I think the manual version is just as fast.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-wxIWXhWBc

Eph429
10-07-2011, 05:29 PM
I like the crease dies as opposed to the dies that create perforations. Perforated dies may be easier to fold, but also can tear. I have a MFT die on its way, just because I want to try it. When you watch so many videos like Kay and Kathy mentioned, it is easy to want them all!

Also Scrapbook trends have indicated that the rosette fan fold embellishments have swelled in interest. So catch the wave!

It is an inexpensive way to please and delight. I've decorated my metal door frames with them. May show a picture one day.

Eph429
10-07-2011, 06:24 PM
I also found that double sided design papers are great because the front and back of the embellishment look equally nice.

When you give embellishments as gifts, the crafter can use either side. Papers work better than card stock.

Don't forget the crimpers, even though the pleats are closer together, it makes the paper more manageable for any crease size for manual creasing.

I got a copy of Cardmaker - 37 popular techniques for cardmaking, today and right on the cover is a card with a rosette. They used a die cut to make it so they didn't really have any instructions, though. Some of the tutorials are better than some of the others. One of the tutorials I was watching rated the Tim Holtz die cut and she didn't really care for that one, but the MFT one looked nice. I am going to try making a rosette, maybee tomorrow. With all this inspiration, how could I not?

kaybee
10-08-2011, 12:11 AM
Looking through those tutorials, I saw one for a Dahlia. It is very much like a tea bag fold. I am definately trying that tomorrow. I like your new rosettes, by the way. I agree with you, I like the 1/4 in. better than the 1/2 in.

I am working on an interchangeable necklace medallion and an idea for embellishments for sandals -- plus other wearable ideas. Backing is important and ways to keep them secure with strong tacking materials

Kathy, they may morph into jewelry.

Saw the new Cuddlebug dominoes embossing folder also as a fan - fold die.
Made a fan fold flower tonight with it. The dominoes folder has equal space lines to achieve the crease for folding ease. No need to score or buy expensive dies. neat!

Plus you get embossing at the same time! Edged with gold stickles. First one done with the embossing folder. The pleats are wider - 1/2"

I know I've probably over posted. If I've overdone it, please someone speak up. Maybe, I should switch and do something else. I have given away over 100. One lady insisted on paying for them in my building. I couldn't stop her. (My apartment door opens onto an internal hallway) on a main thorough fare, and my door frame is metal so that is where they are displayed as magnets - first to beautify the door frames.

I just wanted to experiment with these since Sizzix sells these as dies.

This one is made with the Martha Stewart Scoreboard. 1/2" pleats. Have to make two when you use the 1/2" segments. 12" x 2.5" strip (2).

With the score board you can vary the size.

Trudy, I used the Martha Stewart score board and scored two 12" strips at 1/2" intervals, joined them together. Then snipped one at the end so when it lies flat one end folds down and one end folds up. join with favorite adhesive. Squash and hold in place with a circle die both sides. The butterfly embellishment is from K & Co chip board shapes (I think) This is a 6" rosette across. Large.

I made 8 - 8inch rosettes for an upcoming baby shower. These are plain and the paper was provided for the project. The paper was hand scored with the 1/2 inch pleat and is much easier, making 3 - 4inch strips out of a 12 x 12 sheet. For me it is easier to score the whole 12 x 12 at one time and then cut the 3 - four-inch segments.
