Paper Rosette Love

1.6.2010 3 Comments

Alright, so I’m going to be honest and admit that I’m not exactly sure what these are called — paper pinwheels, accordion fold circles, circular paper fans, paper rosettes? I’ve seen them referenced as all of these, but no matter what they’re called, they’re hot, they’re pretty, and they’re incredibly versatile. I love seeing the rosettes incorporated into everything from wedding decor to gift wrap and rubber stamping and holiday decorating projects. Here are a few of my favorites:

    What a fun and easy idea. I love them hanging from the ceiling for that wedding table and the bright colors used in that “C.” I’m all for cheap, handmade decor :)
