Hello there and welcome to Tuesday Tutorial. Today I'm going to show you how I make paper medallions. I appologize about the photos, my camera broke and I just can't seem to get the temp to work properly!
So get your favorite pattern paper out and let's get started.
You will need
2-1"x12" inch strips of pattern paper
a score tool
fast drying glue
border punch (optional)
I started by using the border punch to cut a shape in my paper.
I used EK Success punch for this.
Now cut 2 - 1 inch stripes of the border. 2- 1"x12" strips.
Score along the strip at every 1/2" intervals
Fold the strips creating hills and valleys. (accordian fold)
Attach both strips together at BOTH ends.
This creates a circle
Flatten circle and push it toward the centre.
Attach a decorated circle on top and hold until glue dries.
(this circle will hold the folds together)
Here are more examples of medallions made with the border punch.
And here are some cards I made using the medallions.
