Yesterday I showed a medallion that my friend made. I included her instructions. Today, I thought I would give my medallion making skills a try again. I would make a medallion with a little more embellishment. There are really only a few differences.
First, I cut a strip of paper 2″ (could be wider) x 12″. I used double sided paper so that a hint of the bottom side might show through. At the same time I cut two 1 1/2″ circles out of areas of the paper that had some contrast. I could have used different paper all together.
I then took a scallop border punch and punched all along one 12″ side.
Yesterday, In the instructions it said to score the paper approximately every 1/4″ – 1/2″. Today it will be a little different. Today I scored the paper where every scallop started. I did this using a scoring mat and a bone folder.
The rest is pretty much the same as yesterday. I accordion folded the paper. I attached the two ends. I had to cut off one scallop because the sides didn’t meet properly. I used the fast drying liquid glue and it worked well. I think the next step is the hardest. Pulling one edge of the paper in towards the center and pushing down at the same time.
Make sure to keep the center hole closed as tightly as possible. While holding it down apply the glue. Make sure to put the glue in all places that the circle will touch.
I then placed one circle in the center of the medallion. I then held that in place for a minute or so to make sure it was thoroughly dried. I carefully turned it over and added another circle to the other side.
I didn’t do this but I could have added more embellishments to the center.
Hope your day is fantastic!
