Hi everyone! I’m back today to share my project I created for Momenta! I wanted to create something floral that I could display on my fireplace mantel with all of my other knick knacks and since I had never created a large medallion I thought the Peony Paper Pad would be perfect for this project.
I started by cutting out six medallion”panels” from the Large Medallion 3D Diecut. But before running them through the Diecut Machine I applied Adhesive Sheets to the Chipboard before laying the floral cardstock on top of the chipboard.
I adhered each section to the end of each medallion “panel”.
Then I glued the ends together to create a circle.
Then the worse thing happened when I pushed it down to create the medallion the paper ripped and no it wasn’t a small rip it was big. 😞 I tried to fix it with a hot glue gun and it wouldn’t hold so I used my trusty bottle of Zip Dry Adhesive and it held the center together. I was very determined to make this project work no matter what. A side note the next one I make I will add two more panels for a total of eight instead of six.
I decided to add two big banners to cover the rip of the medallion. I picked the cardstock for the banners from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad. I cut a “v” in the end of both banners before adhering on top of the medallion.
From my own personal doily stash I adhered a 5 1/2″ mint green doily on top of the banners. The second doily is from the 4″ Watercolor Doily which I glued off center of the other the larger doily.
I picked a floral cardstock from the Peony Paper Pad and fussy cut several of the flowers and leaves out and then adhered to the doilies. I also added a cording bow under the lower collection of flowers on the medallion.
Now it is ready for the mantel along with all my other spring decorations. Need more inspiration? You can find Momenta’s blog HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
