Medallion Tutorial


Stopping in today with a fun little tutorial on how to make a Medallion out of a fence die.  Fun huh?  Don't you love it when your crafting supplies stretch?  Whoda thot right?  First off here is my medallion card...

IMG_7115_edited-1

All of the supplies you see here are from Clear and Simple.  Here is a list of what you need...

It's pretty easy to make but I thought I would show a few pics anyways!  

1. Cut out 2 fences...



2.  Fold up the fence accordion style...it's so easy to do because of the "railings"...that is basically all that scoring done for you!




3.  Take a small piece of 1/8" double sided adhesive and add it to the ends of the fence....


4.Attach the ends...


...to make a circle...


5.  Punch out 2-1" circles...


6.  Push center of fence down flat and adhere using a large glue dot.  I put one cirlce on each side...


7. Finished!  (You could make this into a smaller medallion too, just by cutting a little off the bottom!)


I added a Nestabilities Circle with the L onto the medallion.  Then I attached it to the stamped label with glue dots.

I tucked in some ribbon loops and put the whole thing on the impressed card front.  Oh and I added a little light gray Copic to the "L" for some dimension!  

I hope you like my card!  Let me know if you have any questions!  My blog is going to be a little quiet for awhile!  We have lots going on here!  First things first....the mountain of laundry...the never ending problem at my house and there is only 4 of us...whats up with that?!  hehe!

Have a great day!

Hey, Laurie, this card is simply stunning and love the medallion using your fence die. That one is much longer than the PTI one I have. Created my first medallion the other day for PTI's June Blog Hop but doesn't compare to the beauty of yours. You can check it out here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/56934213@N06/7441345286/

Checked in while we are on vacation in San Antonio and what do I see but this amazing little floral card made with a fence die! How cool is that? What I wish is that the coolness of this card would translate into a real cool down! Temps here yesterday were 105 with even higher temps predicated for today!! Why did we pick this week to take our vacation?! Ha! Well thanks for the "cool" card anyway:)
