Giant Medallions - Wed., Dec. 28, 10-2pm, $25

 This week is bring a friend or relative week, someone who has never taken one of my classes, and that person gets the class for free, plus you get a free class to take any time later in the year. Bring 2 friends, they both get in for free, plus you will get 2 free classes later in the year.

These medallions are made on the Martha Stewart scoring board, but if you don't have one, don't worry, I have several to loan out. You can make the shaped ones like the poinsettia or the edge punched ones. This class is a 4 hour class just to give any beginners time to complete the project, but most people will finish it within 2.5 hours. You can either bring your own scrapbook paper, 6 sheets of 12x12, or 6 sheets of plain lightweight cardstock 8 1/2 x 11 for the medallions you punch around the edges ; 8 sheets of each for the star/poinsettia shaped ones (I'd bring extra to leave room for errors). Or you can use the paper that I will provide. These look great hanging on a wall or on your front door.

We will also learn how to make the snowflake rosettes that are on the white medallions. They are made with a Martha Stewart corner punch that comes in the Punch Around the Page set, so if you want to learn how to make those, just bring any corner punch. I used the embroidered floral corner punch and the raindrop corner punch.

Materials needed: Martha Stewart scoring board (or borrow one of mine, just let me know ahead of time), 1/4 inch two sided permanent tape such as Scor-Tape, scissors, a paper trimmer (or borrow one of mine), a deep edge punch if you have one if you are going to punch around the edge of the circular medallion, and a corner punch with a design in it by Martha Stewart if you want to learn how to make the rosettes. If you want to edge your rosettes in gold or silver, just bring a gold or silver leafing pen.

If you are bringing a friend for the free class, please let me know that in your email so I know to bring enough materials. These medallions are super fun and easy to make but this class won't be offered again for a long time.

Please email me at by Dec. 23 if you would like to take this class. If you have an idea of which medallion you would like to make and in what color, let me know so I can bring that paper and embellishments to go with it. This is a great class with unlimited possibilities on what you can make once you learn the technique.
