Step by Step
Make a basic twisted easel and decorate with your papers.
Cut 8, 7cm squares from your paper. I used 2 different shades of the same design to cut my tiles. Pick 1 of the designs to cut an extra tile for the stopper.
With pattern facing down fold in half open turn the paper a quarter turn and repeat.
Flip the paper over and fold corner to corner to create a triangle open turn a quarter turn and repeat.
Flip the paper over your square will now resemble a pyramid tease 2 facing edges inward to create a triangle.
Have the point of the triangle facing you. Take the right sided folded edge and line that up on the fold running through the centre of the triangle and fold down. Repeat with the left side
Make up all 9 squares in the same way.
Take 4 of each design to create the rosette. Alternate the tiles and using a little Anita’s tacky glue on the top of the lower fold slide the next piece in to place repeat with all 8 tiles.
The centre generally leaves a small hole so use a blitter to conceal this.
Using wet glue stick the rosette to the card.
Stick the spare tile with foam pads into the corner to act as the stopper on your easel. Stick a small blitter on top.
Finish off with a few gems
To make a basic twisted easel card - Fold a square card. Open the card and on the left side score diagonally from the bottom of the fold to the top outside corner. Take the other card and cut on the fold. Stick this piece to the front of the lower triangle.
