A month or so ago, McGill contacted me to see if I’d be willing to write a tutorial on how to make these 3D mini roses using their products. Of course I said yes! They are quick and easy to make and can be made to match your project perfectly.
These are the supplies I used to create the roses. Click HERE to view, download, and/or print the pdf of the Mini Rose Tutorial.
This gorgeous image is Beautiful Mother from A Day For Daisies. For instructions on how to create this card, click HERE. I’d love to see what you come up with. Feel free to link up your mini roses and cards/projects under my comments and I’ll leave some love for you!
I’ve made and used these roses on a lot of cards. I’m adding some of my past cards for added inspiration.
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial, now go create something fun! Thanks for stopping by!

I made a snowflake card that doubles as an ornament. Kind of cool, eh? Lettering Delights has a cool snowflake ornament in their Holiday Gift Giving svg set. Using the Silhouette Cameo, I cut two sets of the same one. One I didn’t embellish, the other I added some texture, dimension, and glitter.
On the back of one of the snowflakes, I used double sided tape on top half of the snowflake. It may be hard to see in the picture, but the tape is on the top five points.
This is what the snowflake looked like after I adhered them together, with only the top half taped together.
Then I used patterned paper (K&Co) and attached another piece of patterned paper to form a pocket. Because this patterned paper blended so well together, I put a piece of white card stock in it so you could see. I added some silver cord and slid the ornament in half way.
The end result is an ornament that is taken out when ready to be used. It wouldn’t be hard to glue or tape the bottom point if needed and it’s a great way to keep some of the card when the rest is tossed in the garbage (and it usually is!). Thanks for stopping by!
