Thinking Day: England Craft

My Twins’ Brownie Girl Scout Troop is participating in Thinking Day and they have chosen England. They have to make a swap, make English food, perform a skit and have a make-n-take craft at their booth. I volunteered to lead the craft and this is what I will show the girl scouts how to make: Rolled “English” roses:

DCF 1.0

To save time I went through my paper scraps and punched a couple hundred scalloped circles.  For the project base I chose precut tags from Papermart. BTW Papermart is sponsoring a nice giveaway on the blog so hop over there to enter! To hold the roses securely I used glue dots because one hundred girl scouts and a couple of hot glue guns seems like a risky idea 🙂 Watch the quick video to see how it is made:

Neat huh? And so easy! You can make these any size and you can even make them from felt! Home and party decor, wearables, the sky is the limit folks! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  3. I just bought the Spellbinders dies to do this and lo and behold this is so lovely and easy. Thanks for a great tutorial again!


  4. Thanks so much for the video! I’ve been having a hard time getting my rolled flowers to look right, hopefully I can make them a little better now. I love your blog, thanks for being awesome!


  5. Great fun for the girls…and all us crafters too! Thanks so much Lindsay for sharing!
    Paper Hugs,


  6. Very sweet idea for those little scouts!!!


  7. I love the flowers. I laughed so hard about the Mother and glue gun warning. I love my “fibers” too. I have a billion skeins of the Lion Brand fiber yarn. I use it for everything. I am pretty sure the Dollar Stores & Dollar Tree glue is from Scrapbuck. Thanks for letting me know how you got your UK Craft magazines so cheap on my other comment.
