DIY BOY OR GIRL PAW PATROL ROSETTE BIRTHDAY BADGE
Hello friends. If you're in Canada, then I wish you welcome after a long Thanksgiving weekend. Likewise to my friends down in the United States from Columbus Day weekend.
On Saturday, I shared a Paw Patrol gift wrap I made for my daughter's birthday. We celebrated the weekend with a Paw Patrol themed birthday bash over at my mom's on Thanksgiving Day. I kept the decorations fairly simple - a few balloons, a birthday banner, and some cups and plates - all in a Paw Patrol theme, but I decided to also make a few things. Today, I'll show you how to craft a birthday rosette badge. I made this one for Victoria to wear, but I am also offering a boy version printable, and a blank version too (see below).
I found the image you see below thru Google. I thought the whole gang of them would appear too small (actual size of the image on the badge is under 5 cm), but I was lucky to find this image of her three favourite characters together: Everest, Skye and Marshall.
Before you create the badge, you'll want to download the image first:
Then, you'll need the following items.
TOOLS & MATERIALS:
Light-weight 12 x 12 inch scrapbook paper in a pattern of your choice
2" circle punch (similar)
1. Print the image on card stock and cut out with the circle punch. If you don't have a punch, then simply use scissors. Set it aside for now.
2. Cut a sheet of 12 x 12 inch scrapbook paper to 12 x 1 1/2 inches with the paper trimmer.
3. Make an accordion with the strip of paper, and secure ends together with the glue runner.
4. Flatten to create the rosette and apply hot glue to the centre to hold it in place.
5. Use hot glue to secure the image on top. Press and hold for a few seconds.
6. Trim another strip of scrapbook paper of 12 x 3/4 inches and cut in half.
7. Make accordions out of them, and cut the ends in a "v".
8. Hot glue the two strips to the back side of the rosette badge.
I enlisted hubby's help for some photos, and I have to applaud him for his great job!
Thank you for taking a look today. Do you have a Paw Patrol loving child at home like mine? Thank goodness for the convenience of Netflix!
