NOTE: The amount of paper depends on how many rosettes you make per size and if you overlap or layer them. The sample used 18 (1”) large, 8 (3/4”) medium and 10 (1/2”) small rosettes.




NOTE: You can paint your cone with acrylic paint before decorating if you want. You will make a number of rosettes to cover your tree.

Making the rosettes; Take your assorted printed cardstocks and cut into strips, a few at a time: 1” x 12”, 3/4” x 12” and 1/2” x 9” Punch out 1” circles for the 1/2” strips and 1 1/2” circles for the 1” and 1 1/2” strips.
Using the MSC Score board, score each strip at 1/4” intervals for the whole length. Accordion fold the strips. Place a piece of tape on one end. Bring the other end around and tape together so that it is joined.
Place glue dots onto the punched circles. Bring the joined circle together to form the rosette. Carefully place the rosettes onto the glue dot. Cover the center with another circle or a punched star. You can also glue on buttons for more embellishment. Use another glue dot or the glue gun to adhere to the cone.
Glue rosettes around the cone, using the different prints and sizes, overlapping where needed. Place to rosettes back to back at the top of the tree topper.
Place an empty ribbon spool inside of the cone. Make sure that it is level. Place tree onto the glass candlestick, glue down if necessary.
