Paper Medallions

Something a little different today. These are some medallions I made for my conservatory, using the new SU Score-Pal along with Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip DSP from the Neutrals Paper Stack. The medallions are very easy to make, if a little time consuming, and if you would like to know how to make them there are lots of tutorials on YouTube. A word of advice though, don't attempt these if you don't own a Score-Pal or similar scoring board!!!
As my conservatory is all neutral colours I wanted to make the medallions to match so I stuck with the neutrals theme, both for the medallions and for the decoration. For the centres I used one of the decorative circles on the Perfect Pennants die with the DSP in the middle punched with a large circle punch. The letters are from the On Board Alphabet Soup pack (found on page 103 of the main catalogue),some coloured with a sponge dauber and Chocolate Chip and the others left plain. I finished decorating with a couple of butterflies on each medallion, cut with the Beautiful Wings Embosslits die and some Basic Pearls.
As you can see I have a metal wall art decoration fixed to the inside wall of my conservatory so I attached a magnet to the back of each medallion and this allowed me to position them wherever I wanted and, as well as that, it also means I can take them down when I want to!!
