I noticed some very cool Tim Holtz dies on the Archiver's website (for example, the Paper Rosettes). But how the heck do you make them? (note: I have a BigShot by Sizzix, with several different spacer plates for working with both dies and Sizzlits). Thanks any and all information! Jane

The video shows you how to make a rosette using the Martha Stewart Score Board, but it is also helpful for assembling a rosette that has been created using the Tim Holtz Rosette die.
To make a rosette using the die, use the thick platform as your base, and then the two clear cutting plates (your die and paper will be sandwiched between the cutting plates). Once your paper is die-cut, add some tissue tape to the back of the paper. This tip is directly from Tim Holtz himself and makes the paper a bit more durable when folding. Accordion fold the paper and adhere the ends together. The video should then help you with assembling the rosette! Hope this helps!
