I cut an acorn, embellished it with Distress Ink, Distress Embossing Powder, and Glossy Accents. While that dried (all freaking day), I cut and assembled a rosette from the Authentique Fall papers. By the time I was done, I really liked the back of it:
There's Tissue Tape on it to keep it from falling apart at the perforations.
So I decided that this would not be something I glued down onto something else. I'd have to hang it from something so I could see both sides. So I made two more, in the smaller sizes:
The tiny one is so cute.
Fortunately, I had two cut out acorns that hadn't turned out so good (embossing powder fail) which I still have to do the Glossy Accents on, but which are now stuck onto the fronts of the rosettes. So here's how they look from the front:
The tiny one is a little wonky because I had to trim it down from the full-sized acorn cutout.
The plan is to hang the medium one from the large one, and the small on from the medium one. I just haven't decided how. I think I want to use either white and brown baker's twine or the acorn charms Mom gave me:
What do you think? Would the rosettes look better connected by baker's twine or by metal acorns? Leaf me a comment and let me know what you think would look better (see what I did there?).
