a wicked Genie bag-a-lope and Rosette tutorial

Happy Halloween weekend! 

It’s Saturday and it’s snowing…yikes!  The ground is already mostly white.  It’s a good day for staying in and catching up!  So I’m going through my “need to upload” pile.  I have a few projects that I still must take photos of but here’s a little Halloween bag-a-lope (Genie style) that’s been sitting in my files. 

This SU! set, Wicked Cool, is so fun!  I love those witch feet!

I die-cut some My Mind’s Eye Halloween papers with the Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangles, then cut the bottom to be flat and attached them to the front & back of the bag-a-lope

I attached one of the buttons I altered with Promarkers to the rosette.  Rosettes are so “in” right now.  If you don’t have a die to make them, no worries…they are super easy to make with your Scor-Pal!  The black rosette was made with a strip of the My Mind’s Eye Halloween paper. 

Here’s how to make Paper Rosettes:

Score ½” x 12” strips of patterned paper every ¼”.  Accordian fold.  Attach ends together, overlapping slightly, to make a ring.  Push one side of the ring to the center to flatten it.  Hold in place and attach a 1” circle to the bottom.  Turn over and attach a ¾” circle to the top.  Decorate as desired. 

Options: adjust the ½” width to desired size to make larger rosettes, roll the edges in acrylic paint, add glitter, roll the edges on a Versamark inkpad and heat emboss with embossing powder, punch one edge with a border punch before scoring, or add buttons, brads, Liquid Pearls, Stickles, punched circles, etc. to centers.  Have fun with them!
