I spent the day playing around with my 'Rolled Rose' cutfile - but this time I used thin sheets of metal instead of paper! I cut these metal roses out with my Cameo Silhouette. I used metal from CRI-Kits.com. If you would like to see a video of how to cut metal you can find it here. This video shows a Cricut machine but the Silhouette cuts the metal just as easily.
If you have never made a Rolled Rose, I have a tutorial for it here on my blog. The only difference in paper versus the metal roses - is not to roll the roses too tight and you can't get too worried if the metal crinkles. Once you finish the rose you won't even notice that the metal is a bit crinkled! I even had one rose the tore a bit when I was trying to 'fluff' it out - but I didn't sweat it, and I couldn't even tell when I finished. I did find that a hot glue gun works the best for glue! I cut the rolled roses out at about 3 inches, I did find that the bigger the roses the easier it was to work with.
I have this rolled rose cutfile in my 'shop' for $.99. The cutfile has 2 roses (one straight and the other scalloped) and 2 leaves. This cutfile is available in SVG, SCUT2, MTC, WPC, KNK, and GSD.
All of the paper I used is made by Crate Paper and is from the 'Portrait Pack' - including all the die cuts, stickers, and border strips.
