 Instructions to make the Rosette flower:
Step #1
Using a Banner punch (I used one from Fiskars for Jenni Bowlin) Punch out a selection of 'petals'.
Step #2
Stitch the petals down the center.

Step #3
Position in a circle shape.
Step #4
Punch a small doily shape for the middle (I used Martha Stewart) 

Step #5
Attach chipboard accents with foam squares

Step #6
Cut x2 paper ribbon pieces.
Step #7
Stick together to make a cute rosette!

Have a great weekend!
