XOXO Scalloped Rosette Banner with Kathy

Hi Everyone, it’s Kathy today with a tutorial on how to piece together Lori’s new XOXO Scalloped Rosette Banner.  I loved this banner the moment I saw it and wanted to create it for my front door!

I started by cutting 4 of each of the banner back pieces, and one set of X’s and O’s.

I like to add a little dimension to my projects so I adhered the two background triangles together using some foam tape.

Next, I started making the rosettes.  Rosettes are not hard, they just take a little patience.  I fan-folded the rosette strips using the score lines as my guide.

I then attached the two ends of each strip using some liquid adhesive.  I use a quick drying adhesive when making rosettes, it gives you a little wiggle room if you make a mistake (unlike hot glue) and it holds well without taking forever to dry.

To make the rosette, add some liquid adhesive to one of the small circles.  Place the glued, fan-folded strip over the circle (make sure the scalloped edges are on the bottom) and press the top of the glued, fan folded strip towards the center and down.

You may need to play with it a little to get it to be the shape you want.  This is where the patience comes in… you need to hold it down for a little until the glue is dry enough to hold.

Once it is dry enough, put the larger circle on the front of the rosette, let dry.

All that is left is to assemble each of your banner pieces.  I glued the completed rosettes onto the banner pieces, and then added the XOXO letters to each piece using foam tape for more dimension.

I tied my pieces together using some Chunky twine and it’s all ready to go on my door!

That’s it for me today.  Don’t forget that Lori is  having a sale in her SVG shop this week!  Use code JAN2016 and get 30% off your entire order! It’s perfect timing to stock up on Valentine’s Day goodies!
