TUTORIAL: rosette valentines


rosettes cropped

it's almost valentine's day, people. time to get after it if that's your thing.
i do not particularly enjoy valentine's day, because i feel like you should probably be nice to the person that's in your life more than one day a year. but that's just me. 
perhaps i'm just being extremely high maintenance.


anyway.
let's make rosettes! YAY!

materials:
paper cut into a rectangle
two paper circles per rosette
opposable thumbs
glue

i got ambitious and thought i was going to make two rosettes for this tutorial.
turns out, i made one and went to bed instead.

1. you want to fold your rectangle into a zigzag fan thing. to minimize chances of screwing everything up, start by folding your rectangle in half.
