Fan Fold Medallion


This is the last of the cards we did at the Glitter Pot. It uses My Mind's Eye papers, Bazzill Basics card, and a Stampendous greeting. The medallion is made by fan folding a 12" strip of paper after punching the edge with an edging punch (Martha Stewart - Doily Lace). Then you join the ends and persuade it into a circle.

Wow - that is beautiful! I love how you said "persuade it into a circle" - that's describes it pretty well!

Hi Joanne,
Beautiful card, love the colours and love the center !!
You say a 12" long strip of paper but what about the depth ?? does that depend on the size of circle you want.

I love it, just a quick question thought:) Up to what thickness can the Martha Stewart punches go through.
