Paper Medallion Tutorial

If you are here to enter my GIVEAWAY for OVER $100 of our products Click Here to enter.

I have been working on making some things for a Valentine's Day party Felicity is having and after making a bunch of these little paper medallions today I decided to snap some pictures of the process and share it with you.

You start with a strip of paper (if you are using 12x12 scrapbook paper cut in into 3 strips), I also like to use paper sacks a lot for things, to make a medallion out of theme take a small paper sack and cut out one entire side of it.

Fold the entire strip of paper back and forth accordian style, making good creases.  It can be hard to get good creases in heavy cardstock, which is why I prefer to use lighter paper or nice paper sacks.

Once the entire strip is folded accordian style fold it in half and make a good crease in the center.

Then reverse and fold the other direction making the crease on both sides.

Then fold back up and glue the top center ends of the paper together.

The fold the botton half back down along the crease you already made and glue the ends together.

Now you have a paper medallion that can be used for all kinds of projects.  I will share tomorrow what I am doing with the paper medallions I am making.  But here are some neat ideas for things other people have used paper medallions for.

Martha Stewart's team made these large paper medallion and hung as decorations for a party.

This Christmas ornament from http://www.pattystamps.typepad.com/ has a small paper medallion incorporated into the design.

This unique 4th of July wreath by Shelterness.com is made with patriotic paper medallions.

Check back tomorrow and I should have pictures up of what I did with my little medallions.
