Cut and Paste Victorian Clown Paper Rosette Ornaments

I chose to make the collars of my scrap clowns using cup cake liners; this allows me to price these little rosettes for less at craft fairs. I can also produce them quicker saving both time and money.
Supply List:
  • pom poms
  • striped and solid colored cup cake liners
  • Victorian scrap of clown heads (portraits)
  • thin metalic string for hanging
  • white glue
  • scissors
Directions:
  1. Purchase or print Victorian scrap of clowns
  2. Cut out the center unruffled portions of two or four striped cup cake liners. You can use more than this to make the ruffled collars of each clown; it's a matter of preference. 
  3. Glue the tips of each ruffle to the outer edge of a single circle backed with the same papers. 
  4. Glue two rosettes together, face sides out so that only the decorative parts are seen.
  5. Clip, ruffle and reglue a smaller rosette from a solid colored cup cake liner to the front of each collar. 
  6. Glue the Victorian clown scrap on top of this second layer. The cord for hanging should be sandwiched between these two final layers.
  7. Glue on pom poms.
