So begin by cutting your paper rosette shape. Now you'll have 3 white rectangles, 3 blue rectangles, 1 circle and 1 cut-out circle. Run your blue rectangle and the cut-out circle through your Xyron Creative Station. Now lay the blue rectangle over the white rectangle and the red cut-out circle on the larger white circle. Use the score lines that are on the rectangles and fold them accordion style. Do that to all three fans and then we'll use our Xyron Mega Runner and run a line of adhesive on the white side of the end of the rectangle and then lay it over a piece of the blue fan. Next, place your adhered fan on to a flat surface. Just press down in the middle and the fan will start folding in. Now I use some hot glue to hold that small circle together but you can choose what works best for you. Now you'll place the eagle cut-out circle over the middle. So easy and such a quick patriotic Fourth of July craft. These paper rosettes that I made with my Cricut go perfectly with these Fourth of July party poppers and the super cute patriotic coozies.
