Technique Tuesday


Remember a few weeks ago  I talked about making medallions (also known as accordion-folded flowers or medallions)?

Well, I’ve been making some of those in various sizes to assemble into flowers and put in a small flower pot.


These are some of the individual medallions I made using the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-Bration flyer.


Now, you can stack 2 or three (or more) medallions together to make the flower.  The large orange medallion is made using the Tangerine Tango from the Designer Series Paper Patterns Stack – Brights Collection (#117155).

The large Tangerine Tango medallion is made from a 2″ wide by 24″ long strip of paper.  The medium-sized medallions are made from a strip of DSP that is 1 1/2″ wide by 12″ long.  The smallest medallions are made from strips that are 1″ wide by 12″ long. All strips are scored at 1/4″ intervals and the folded accordion style.  To make scoring these strips easy and quick, I used our Simply Scored Scoring Tool (#122334).  This product comes with everything you’ll need: the base with 1/8 ” marks, 3 place markers, and a stylus.  Extra place markers and stylus are available to purchase.

I made these while I was watching a movie on TV.  I’ll show you the finished flower pot later.

Happy crafting!    -Sandra-
