Paper Rosette Wedding Banner

creating with joy paper rosette banner

We are so looking forward to our daughter's wedding this summer, and I have the perfect Joy embroidered letters for this paper rosette banner I made for the reception!

You will need:

JOY embroidered letters
Cardstock - teal & black (double-sided)
2-1/2" gold wire ribbon - 3 yards
1-1/2" sheer vintage white ribbon - 3 yards
Deflecto sign hangers
Paper trimmer and scorer
Die-cut machine and scalloped circle die
2" and 1" circle punches
glue gun, jute string, scissors

For each paper rosette, accordion-fold 3" x 12" strips of cardstock, scored every 1/2".  Glue the folded strips together end to end, with the same color facing up.

Form the long strip into a circle and glue the two ends together. Glue 2" circles to cover the center hole on both sides Make enough rosettes for each letter of your sentiment - this design took 11 rosettes with the teal and black colors alternated. Glue a letter on top of each rosette.

To hang the banner, glue a 1" circle of cardstock near the top of the back of each rosette. Glue a hanger to each circle as shown, so you can thread the jute string through each hanger for the letters to hang straight. 

Tie a loop in each end of the jute to hang the banner. Tie ribbon bows between each word and at each end of the banner, alternating the gold and white.
