Crepe Paper Rosettes Tutorial

Crepe paper rosettes embellished with carnations

So I finally dug out those packages of crepe paper streamers I had been saving and this is what I came up with... crepe paper rosettes.  Some of them I used a machine to put in the stitch but on most of them I did it by hand with needle and thread. You can embellish the middles with buttons, foam shapes, etc.. The ones in the top photo are embellished with crepe paper carnations.  If you are interested in making some of these rosettes, there is a link to the tutorial at the end of this post.  Here are some more photos:
