DIY Paper Rosettes

Paper Rosettes are so beautiful.
They are perfect for weddings, baby showers, bridal showers, birthday parties ... heck I'd even hang them at Christmas. They look rather complicated and they are a little time-consuming, but I promise they are actually not that difficult to make. I wanted this to be a super easy tutorial for you guys so I really stepped out each step and took my sweet ass time. Which means you need to leave a comment below and say how much you love them. These gorgeous yellow and gray rosettes were used for a bridal shower I did. Hope you love them as much as I did.

What you need
Any sheet of paper, any size
Hot Glue
Hole Punch
Scissors
String

 Love! I hung the rosettes with my coffee filter poms.

 Using a hole punch, punch a hole at the end of each fold. You can use a decorative punch as well. On these I also used a tiny punch so there were 2 holes in each fold.
