This sweet lady scores at every half inch, then turns her strip over, starts at 1/4", then scores every half inch to the end. I couldn't believe how fast and easy the folding was. If you can make sense of my directions, you will love making rosettes twice as fast!!! You could use one inch, 1/2 inch if you're making larger rosettes.
I'm definitely going to use this technique when I want 1/4" scores -- because I have so much trouble when it comes time to folding.
