I might be a little biased, thought.
Without any further adieu let me introduce you to my good friends, pineapple, cherry, peach and strawberry. Together they are DIY summer fruit paper rosettes and you can make them all with a few basic tips and tutorials Here we go:

- Four strips of 2″ x 12″ red cardstock, scored at 1/2″ intervals
- 3″ circles cut from red cardstock
- a hot glue gun
- one green cherry stem cut using the Cricut Explore or using scissors
Fold two strips of paper and attach with hot glue
Create a rosette with the scored strips of paper then close the rosette with a red circle on each side. Repeat steps one and two to create a second red rosette
Use a hot glue gun to attach the red rosettes to the paper cherry stem.
- two 4″ x 12″ pieces of pink cardstock
- two 3″ circles cut from pink cardstock
- a hot glue gun
- Green strawberry topper
Put the two piece of scored paper together, with wrong sides facing each other. Use scissors to cut a wave as shown
Fold the accordion folds then use a glue gun to adhere the strips as shown above.
Glue the other ends of the strips together and flatten to create a heart shaped rosette! Glue the circles on the front and back (not pictured) then add a strawberry topper (not pictured).
Note: Play around with the wave shape to create shorter, fatter heart shapes. By doing this you can also create a peach or nectarine just like I did!
