Although we live in a small town in eastern Idaho, my hubby and I are city folk at heart. I was raised in Denver, he in Baltimore. We are having a fun time embracing the country lifestyle and picking up some new hobbies along the way. A few years ago we decided to raise chickens in the backyard. It has been a phenomenal success and fun for everyone in the family!
So, long story short, both of my kids won ribbons for their chicken entries at this year's county fair (grand champion and first place!) and I thought that the Epiphany Crafts round 25 tool would be perfect for a medallion in the center of an award ribbon.
My daughter turned 6 this past Monday so I made this cute little badge for her to wear around all day. I'll show you how to attach a pin below.
I made a rosette from two 1 1/4"x12" strips of paper scored every 1/2". I embellished the center with scallop and circle punches and an Epiphany Crafts round 25 embellishment.
Here's how to attach a pin to the medallion:
1. Layer banner flags to the back of the rosette, starting with the shorter flags in the front and the long flags in the back.
2. Apply a strip of hot glue to the back of a circle and attach safety pin.
3. Hot glue the circle with pin to the back of the medallion and you're done!
Inspired by the rosettes, I made a fun sunshine card with a rosette and EC round 25 tool.
I made the custom embellishment with a sunshine print and made the rosette from two 3/4"x6" strips of paper scored every 1/4". Cute!
With the school year about to commence, these medallions would come in handy for awards all year long, especially for those of you who are teachers and/or classroom volunteers.
