Love Rosette Frame

Have you joined in on this weeks craft challenge yet?  The theme is pattern paper and there is still time!  Here's what I made for the challenge. 
Here's how I made mine.  My frame came with a matte so I traced it on my pattern paper and then cut it out.

Next I glued it on.  I just used a glue stick.

 Added some pictures. 
I'm sure you've seen these rosettes everywhere but in case you haven't here's a quick how to. Cut out a long piece of fabric and a circle of felt (mine should have probably been bigger).

 Add some glue to the center of your felt and stick one end of your fabric in it.  Start twisting your fabric and slowly wrap it around the center moving outward to the edge of the felt.  Add glue to the felt as you go.  Tuck the end under. 
 You will end up with something like this.  I also like to skip the above step and just twist and wrap my fabric then glue the whole thing to the felt once it looks like I want it to.  I think its a lot easier this way.
 Embellish your rosette.  I glued on a bead and used tulle.
 Glue to your frame
 And hang on your wall.
