The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

Supplies Used:

12″ x 12″ Cactus stencil TCW655

6″ x 9″ Sing Unto stencil TCW2156

 Gold Gesso TCW9003

12″ x 12″ decorative papers

transparent tape

foam spouncer

masking tape

quick dry adhesive

hot glue


hymnal page

black gel pen

glitter glue

needle and thread


TCW655 and TCW2156 gold gesso and sheet music LEFKO

Cut decorative paper into two 2″ x 12″ strips for each rosette. Overlap ends of strips to create one 2″ x 24″ strip and secure with transparent tape. (Each rosette requires a 2″ x 24″ strip.) Place stencil on top and secure to work surface with masking tape . Apply gold gesso with foam spouncer through Sing Unto and Cactus stencils on lengths of paper strips.

Overlap ends of each strip to form rosette and adhere with quick dry adhesive. They won’t lay flat at this stage, but rather resemble lampshades!
