{let’s watch} a video tutorial on how to make paper medallions!

Posted on July 2,2012 by Jennifer

Can’t see the video above? Click here to go to YouTube to view video.

Bonnie Bee asked me to make a video tutorial of my paper medallions and I aim to please so here’s my first video tutorial! These medallions were featured in the Summer 2012 edition of Celebrating Everyday Life with Jennifer Carroll which you can read here. It’s a 15 minute video because I wanted to give you lots of details. (Sorry if it’s too detailed!)  You can also read written directions on this post. I hope that you enjoy this lesson and begin making your very own medallions soon. While I’ve styled these for the 4th of July, I use these medallions year-round by just switching out the embellishments.

Please leave a comment if you like this and would like to see me share more video tutorials. Have a particular topic in mind? Please tell me that too!

Happy Crafting!

    Jennifer that is such a cool video – so comprehensive! I actually feel confident that I could give it a go myself! I wonder, if I wanted to make large ones to go on a wall as a backdrop for a party table, could I go about it in just the same way? H xo

      What an intriguing idea… I’ve never tried to make bigger ones – in theory I don’t see why it wouldn’t work… now I absolutely want to give it a go!! If I get a chance I’ll give it a try this weekend and let you know – I would love it if it worked!
