Rosette Swap Reveal

WOW!  I was absolutely wowed when I received my rosette package from my secret partner, Lisa.  This was her first swap and let me tell you, anyone would be overjoyed to have her as a swap partner.  She went WAY above and beyond a simple rosette.  From the box with the beautiful rose to the tons of various rosettes, vintage trims, book pages, buttons and even chandelier crystals  she sent, they are all absolutely FabUlous!

Thanks Lisa for such a beautiful gift.

This is the rosette I sent to my partner Jenny.  It turns out that we knew each other from a scrapbook kit club we both belonged to a few years ago – how cool is that!

The rosette pin is quite large; about 8 inches.  I started by making the trio of rosettes out of chiffon, added some coordinating beads for the centers and then finished it with a ruffle all the way around.  I though it would be good for a bag or if you’re like me (go BIG or go home), for a jacket lapel. 

Thanks Jill for hosting a FabUlous swap!

Very pretty--all of it! Would not mind some close-up photos of your gift rosettes. It seems there is some variety to how each was created. Your chiffon rosettes look so feminine and soft.
