Charity here from Scrappin' Chaos with a quick and easy way to make accordion fold medallions. Birds and feathers in pastel colors embellish this spring banner. The medallions that frame the letters are made from a circle of paper rather than a strip. This cuts down on the amount of paper needed as well as the time required to make the folds.
Step 1:Cut a 5” circle. Cut a 1.75” circle from the center, set this aside for final step.
Step 2: Fold circle in half, lining up outer and inner edges. This will mark the center line and give you a guide for the following folds.
Step 3: Place #6 Template on circle, lining up existing creases.
Step 4: Score remaining six lines. Fold circle at each of these score marks.
The finished medallion has 16 creases. The banner medallions have 32 creases.
Best Glue Ever from ScraPerfect holds the foiled papers together. Spread evenly and allow to partially dry.
The birds and feathers are die cut from the Spring variety pack. Embossing the birds gives them an additional spark of originality. I added different feather lengths to the banner pieces, but kept with the pastel color theme.
