Cut a piece of artwork paper in half, always remember to get a young artists permission first!
Fold the piece of paper back and forth concertina style. Repeat for the second piece.
Take one of the concertina papers and fold in half. Glue the two sides that face each other together. Repeat this step with the second half and leave to dry.
Once the two halves are dry open them up to create a fan shape, now glue the two fans together along the straight side to create a wheel.
Taking the colored/patterned paper cut a heart that will sit in the center of the rosette. Also cut two long rectangle shapes with a triangle removed from one ends it resembles a ribbon.
Glue the heart to the front and center of the wheel.
Glue the ribbons to the back - make sure you have the ribbons hanging down when you turn it over.
Tape a safety pin to the back of the rosette so your recipient can wear it with pride.
Print off our sheet of rosette centers and cut out the circles.
Glue the circle onto the center of the heart.
A beautiful rosette to hand the person you wish to give your heart to and all made from that old stack of process art.
Happy Valentines day, the world needs more love
