Dodge the baby-kissing politicians & go for artistic Prize Ribbons and Rosettes
Has your baby been kissed by a stranger lately? Or have you been accosted by random people wanting to shake your hand? Perhaps you’ve been harassed with leaflets in public or on your doorstep?
If they’ve been wearing a brightly-coloured tie and ill-fitting suit, chances are it was a politician desperate for your vote. With the general election approaching, there are hordes of wannabes eager to get on the Westminster gravy train of expenses and privilege, and sullying the humble rosette in the process.
There’s no need for rosettes to only come out in election season – they can be a stylish symbol of achievement, congratulations, or thanks, untarnished by politicians.
Take these rosettes for example – fun and enduring, they’re a great way to show appreciation.
With a “Vote For You” print originally created for Vox Pop, a new political party that aims to give power to the people, Art & Hue have pop art prints of rosettes with slogans such as “Yay!”, “You’re #1”, and “Well Done”. Available in a variety of colour options, prints can be customised with personal messages, ideal to commemorate occasions such as passing exams, driving tests, weddings, or sporting achievements.
John Lewis have a kit from The Makery to make your own ribbon rosettes at home.
Scout & Whistle have amazing Prize Ribbons, with great slogans of “Party Animal” and “You are so Rad”. Home Arty Home loves “Nap Champ” which would look great above a bed.
Marks & Spencer offer a gift bag with a rosette that makes for fun packaging when wrapping paper isn’t practical for an oddly shaped gift, or lack of time!
