DIY crepe paper rosettes

Here’s a quick tutorial on how to make the crepe paper rosette that we used on the back of our graduation cupcake pick from our new graduation collection: fold the crepe paper like an accordian, bend it into a circle, close it with a touch of hot glue and put a lovely round pick in the center. It’s that simple!

They’re great to top cake plates and cupcakes,

to embellish frames (the center is a silver gumball from our friends at That’s So Sweet), and you could also make multiple staggered layers of crepe for a fun cake topper… hmmm… you may be seeing more of these from me. {wink}

Have a fabulous day and as always, I hope you’re inspired!
