I just bought the ribbons and rosettes cartridge and I am wanting to make the Christmas Tree Project that is showing in the projects section. Anyway, I need to make various size rosettes and am having a little difficulty with this. I am using the cartridge through the online cricut craftroom, and when I click on the rosette I want it and put it on the virtual mat, it comes up with a width of 5.22 and a height of 2.5. My question is, how do I make the rosettes in various sizes? I have tried stretching the rosette out but then it starts to look "stretched out" and looks different than the standard size one. I sure hope this makes sense.
Could someone please give me some advise on how to make these rosettes in various sizes.

Thank you very much.

You need to weld together the individual segments to make a long continuous strip.....

I bought Ribbons and Rosettes thinking it would be like the TimHoltz Rosette Dies (one long continous stip)...big disappointment! This is one cartridge that I was so excited to get that I paid full price and ordered it through cricut.com! Another big disappointment. Honestly, I almost cried when I saw how the rosette feature worked. You have to cut small sections and then glue them together! How could Provocraft do this to me!!!Huh

Well, I am all about making 'lemonade out of lemons', so I figured out how to make the rosettes using my Gypsy. I welded the sections together (this can be done with CCR, too)! I was not going to let the cartridge get the best of me!! Glare

Rule of thumb about making various sizes with rosettes...whatever width you make the strip, when it is folded and then made into a circle to form the rosette, it will be double the width of the strip..
1 inch strip=2 inch rosette
2.5 strip = 5 inch rosette
Also, the wider the width of the strip, the longer you will need to make the strip. I don't have exact measurements for this.

Here is a blog entry that I did using the Ribbons and Rosettes cartridge...

Hope all of this helps!

Edited to add...
TH rosette dies have score marks where the strips are folded. I don't really have a problem with this unless the paper had a white core. However, it certainly makes folding the strip very easy.

The cartridge rosette strip has tiny tic marks at the folds. The strip must be scored to fold (I use my MS scorer). Sometime the tic marks aren't exactly where I need them to be. So, I usually 'hide' the tic marks on the first image that I put on the Gypsy screen and then duplicate that image to weld together. I am going to have to use the Scorer anyway...so I eliminate the less-than-perfect tic marks from the cartridge image.

If you scroll down the page at the Project Centre you'll see where you can download the .ccr file that PC created for that project. All the hard work (other than hot gluing it all together of course..) is done for you. http://www.cricut.com/project/V...t/1954/Rosette-Christmas

Just save the file and Import it into CCR.

There are about 25 layers in the project, but they have been labeled with the colour that they cut them out of if that helps. Smile

I bought the cartridge when it first came out to make rosettes for 100 3rd graders. Was very disappointed with the rosette feature. I had too many rosettes to make to do all that extra glueing. I noticed the border feature. I used that instead. It cut out 12 inch border strips. They were perfect! I just used the MS scoring board & it was a cinch!

After making all those rosettes a year ago, I haven't had any desire to make more. ... Until I saw that Christmas tree project. I just might have to try it.
