A Rosette Bow For Every Occasion: Embellish, Accessorize, Gift

The rosette design is a decorative element that has been used since antiquity. It is defined by its petal-like ruffles has been known to be a symbol of dignity, authority, and if you’re us – beauty. We love using this floral motif to accentuate our awards, clothes, and gifts.

Embellish awards: Celebrate and motivate by creating awards or badges using the classic rosette shape. Simply create your rosette bow shape and to the center, add a flat button or label with your achievement! This is an especially great DIY rosette ribbon option for those commemorating scholastic (or every day!) achievements.

FYI: To create rosette ribbon awards, we love using double-faced satin ribbon.

Accessorize clothes: Dress up a plain piece of clothing with a blooming rosette bow accessory. Simply make your bow and glue onto a pin or brooch. Then, add rosette bow onto clothing. This trendy DIY is perfect for upcoming sweater weather.

FYI: For a fancy rosette ribbon accessory, we love layering textures like lace and cotton.

Gift beautifully: Add a polished touch to your gifts with a voluminous gift bow. We love the addition of a rosette bow to gifts because its fluffy shape looks complicated and extravagant, but it’s actually one of the easiest bows to create.

FYI: The wider the ribbon, the more extravagant the gift bow. To ensure your rosette petals maintain their shape, use wired ribbon.
