Y&FH #16 Anything But a Card

At the end of July I am hosting a local scrapbook retreat and thought it would be fun to decorate each of the tables with a little "something," but with a total of 13 tables to decorate I started to think it might be wise to combine cute with cost effective. I think this 5.5" x 5.5" rosette with Fumi w/ Turtle is going to be the perfect solution.

 I am proud to say that not one Hershey's Kiss was
harmed during the photography of this rosette!!
Two (2) strips of  heavy card stock were cut at 2.5" x 12" after using a scallop border punch on the long edge. After the strips were scored and pleated at all indents, both ends were attached with Scor-Tape.  I used a Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle die to make the center of the rosette.
The current challenge at Yumi & Fumi Handmade is Anything But a Card (ABC). Think tags, gift card holders, banners, journals, many paper crafts fall into this category. There is one small catch to this can't win if you don't enter and with a fabulous $15 gift certificate to the Y&FH store as the prize, it is definitely worth entering.

The challenge runs through Friday, 5/24 at noon, pst to ENTER, and all rules and qualifying stamps can be found in the Challenge Info tab.
In case you haven't heard, Y&FH is in the midst of a DT call which runs until June 1st....all the info you need can be found in the DT Call tab. Good luck to all that apply!
Happy Sunday, thanks for stopping's always fun chatting with my Blogger friends.
