Vacation Prize Ribbon Rosette and Free Printable

Cleaning out my studio I came across this rosette I crafted earlier this year to commemorate our wonderful family vacation to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico when the kids were little. I plan to shadow-box it (eventually!) I don’t have a photo tutorial to share, just inspiration, notes and a free printable.

If you’ve ever vacationed in beautiful Mexico you can probably appreciate the kitchy style of my project. For the rosette petals I used beautiful woven trim pulled from a vintage skirt, accented with red glitter ribbon. The beads are from a bracelet I had. I found the woven paper at Paper-Source, trimmed round with pinking shears and placed it atop red glitter cardstock. I printed and adhered to cardstock shot of the kids, and trimmed it into a centerpiece circle. The MEXICO sticker  from Jolee’s.The ribbon tails are meant to resemble film strips. I designed the strips and digitally reduced and cropped my photos to 1″ x 1.5″ to fit within the frames and placed them within using Adobe Illustrator. With the free printable below, you can do the same with Photoshop and possibly other image editing software, or trimmed out by hand. Once the sheet was printed out, I made it shiny by laminating it with clear contact paper, burnishing well to eliminate the fogging effect, and trimmed out the strips individually.Click on the image below for the film strip PDF printable for use in any of your crafts!

    Thanks for sharing. This would be fun to do for different vacations; save them and hang them at different times of the year to relive happy memories. Could also use for Christmas, kids’ birthdays, etc. You’ve given me a wonderful starting point! And thanks so much for the free download of the photo strip!
