In planning for Father's Day, I couldn't let it go by without creating a few decorations. I think I love decorating for a party even more than making cards (blasphemy!) I get to make pretty things and keep them up in my home until I get tired of seeing them...
I didn't want to get carried away (I'm still recovering from the last 3 parties I threw at our house!) So, a few things to plaster on our giant cork board will set the perfect festive tone... A sweet little surprise that he can look at while eating his special breakfast (yeah, I'm making him come down the stairs... the whole eating-in-bed thing is overrated, isn't it?)
These medallions are really fun and easy to make. I've never done a tutorial before, so forgive me if it's not very clear, but here are the steps I took to create them.
|score a strip of paper every 0.5 inch - easy-peasy on my scor-board!|
|add a piece of scor-tape or other strong adhesive to the ends|
|it will look like this when the ends are attached together|
|punch out 2 circles and cover them in strong adhesive. The medallion gets sandwiched between the 2 circles|
|embellish it for father's day!|
I hope you found my little tutorial helpful! I love the look of a whole bunch of these medallions, in all different sizes, acting as the focal point at a party or wedding, even! Stay tuned tomorrow - I'll show you how to make a 5-point star.
I'll be back for the star! ;) These are great... your tutorial was perfect!ReplyDelete
