    Tim Holtz Paper Rosette (15-Jan-11)

    What an interesting design! This is a SIZZLITS die, so will cut paper and cardstock (but not heavy chipboard or fabric - which would be nice - someday - Tim, are you listening??) Because the die cuts the paper into a long strip with horizontal perforations (for folding), the paper needs to be sturdy enough to survive that punishment........OR you need to reinforce it with a piece of tape (TH's Tissue Tape works nicely!) before folding.

    I DID have trouble getting my first rosette together, even after watching the video. But practice!! It's a clever design and looks great when you use Distress ink to give the piece dimension.

    Creative Die Cut (22-Oct-10)

    All I can say is Tim Holtz at his best again. He only gives the highest quality of products. Had a little trouble at first manipulating the rosette but once I got the hang of it -- oh the possibilities!!

    Rosettes are easy now (03-Nov-12)

    I find using the TH rosette die so easy and fun. You can cut two of different colors/designs and glue them together to make a bigger rosette.. great.

    love the results (08-Apr-11)

    I loved the look of the Rosette. I made a larger one by using two strips. Easy to follow directions and you can see Tim make then on the web.

    Love it! (26-May-11)

    I absolutely love this die. I was debating about waiting and getting the other one that cuts two smaller sizes, but then had the idea of running the pp through and then trimming it, and it works perfectly! I love the layered look you can get with this.

    I use my zig pen to attach the ends, and no problem at all. If I don't have time to hold it together for a few seconds, I simply grab a bull clip and let that hold it while I do something else.

    Two things...1) When you put the center circle on the front and back, it's best to use your glue gun. Glue dots didn't hold it for me. 2) if you're cutting this with the Big Kick/Big Shot, you need to have the extended platform and the extended plates.

    Tim Holtz Paper Rosette by Sissix (11-Oct-10)

    I saw this die demonstrated by Tim Holtz at Scrapfest at the Mall of America in September. The die was available on Scrapbook.com and ordered it. The rosette is exactly how Tim demonstrated. The die has perfect folds and looks wonderful when completed. The only concern is not to use really thin paper as the die will perforate deeply so the paper may tear when folding.

    Sizzix Tim Holtz large rosette die (20-Jun-13)

    This die works great as long as you use some type of paper tape or washi tape to keep the perforations from tearing. I really like it with the added washi anyhow so it really added to the appeal of what I was looking for. I bought the mini rosette first and was glad to find the large rosette die here at Scrapbook.com.

    Good overall (10-Aug-11)

    I love the end product. However, I have to run the die through twice because it is too long to do it all in one pass on the Big Shot

  • Cuts Instead of Scores on Many Weights of Paper (17-Feb-11)

    I was excited to receive this die but have been disappointed with its usability. To wit: the die cuts/perforates instead of just scoring. That means when I start folding, and especially when it's time to manipulate the circle into the rosette, bits start to separate, just like postage stamps (the old ones, anyway!).

    The problem is not quite so pronounced on cardstock, but I'd planned to make rosettes from my stash of various printed mid-weight paper.

    Sizzix customer service and a number of designers working for/with Tim Holtz say to just use Holtz's tissue tape or clear tape on one side of the rosette to ensure the little segments hold together. I don't always want to cover the print with another design element, though.

    I have tried using two layers of paper--one slightly heavy, the other the one I really want to bend, and that helps a little, so long as I am precise in lining up the paper strips. This being a sizzlit die, it can't handle too many layers.

    I supposed this is all still easier than scoring every 1/8 of inch by hand...though it is not as easy as advertised and I would hesitate to recommend it.

    Difficult to glue together (18-Nov-10)

    While this looks cool, it was supremely difficult to keep it folded. Needed more than 2 hands! Nothing I tried glue dots, doublesided tape, holds it together! BOING! The centers for the back and front are too small. Especially need a much larger circle to glue it down, if you can! I did use a lightweight paper, maybe it's better with heavier?
