DIY Paper Rosette & Banner Ribbons | Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin August 2020 Card Kit Alternative Ideas

 Welcome to Paper Pumpkin Week here at Creative Chelsey. I love getting my Paper Pumpkin Kit every month and creating fun alternative projects using the supplies in the kit. Today is my third alternative project using the August 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit – World’s Greatest. For this card I was inspired to use a paper rosette and make a ribbon banner. I have some fun tips and tricks that will make creating these easier. I love creating alternative cards with Paper Pumpkin Kits so make sure to come back for more videos as I continue to create with this month’s kit. I would love to see your finished creations that are inspired by this tutorial! You can tag me in any social media post using @creativechelsey | #creativechelsey or email me at

1- Begin by cutting the Mint Macaron cardbase in half end size 4 ¼” x 5 ½”. You can use the other half to make my first alternative project – check it out here:

2- Create the Paper Rosette: Use a scoring tool like the simply scored or a paper trimmer with a score blade. We want to have a score line every ¼”. 

TIP: to make folding easier, score the 1” strip every ½” starting a ¼”. For example: ¼”, ¾”, 1 ¼”, 1 ¾”, etc. Then flip the cardstock strip over to the other side and score in between the existing score lines. For example: ½”, 1”, 1 ½”, 2, etc. 

3- Fan fold down the whole strip.

4- Use a strong glue to glue the ends together. Then stand the ring up on the Silicon Craft Sheet and place hot glue in the center. Bring the top of the ring together and flip the bottom out. Hold and press the center in the hot glue until cool. Add hot glue to the other side of the rosette and press on to the Silicon Craft Sheet until cool. 

5- Adhere the Mint Macaron pattern piece to the front of the cardbase with liquid glue so you can move it around and match it exactly to the cardbase. Use a bone folder to smooth out the glue so you don’t get any lumps as it dries. Add the Bumblebee watercolor piece to the center of the card.

6- Add the paper rosette a little higher than center with hot glue.

7- Create the Ribbon Banner: cut 6” of the Pacific Point Ribbon from the kit, flag each end by folding in half and cutting from the fold to the corners. Repeat on the other side. 

From the edge of the dimensionals cut a ¾” x ¼” piece (you will need 4 of these). Measure 1” from the points of the banner and add 1 long dimensional. Fold the ribbon over the dimensional. 

Place the banner side down and add a second long dimensional over the fold, then fold the ribbon back over the second dimensional. 

Repeat on the other side. (see video below for help)

7- Add the ribbon across the paper rosette and adhere with hot glue. To tack down the ends use glue dots.

8- Stamp your greeting in Pacific Point in the center of the small circle and adhere to the center of the Gold die cut. Add to the center of the Paper Rosette with hot glue. 

9- Add three gold starts to the card with glue dots in opposite corners of the card – total of 6 stars.

All Done!
