Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Preview – Medallion de Fleur

SCROLL DOWN FOR ANOTHER REVEAL POST!

OK, I have to preface this project by saying it is easily the hardest project I have ever had to photograph!

Between the hanging nature of this project (my photo box has nothing to hang it on!) and the surfaces all at different angles, I am amazed they turned out this well. I took over 40 pictures to get these. Every aperture setting and lighting set up combination possible!

I thought it would be cute to make a bunch of these to hang at a baby shower, maybe with a cut out baby image hanging from the ribbon at the bottom or just to at some seasonal decor to your home. Since it was spring while I was making this (of course) I went with springy colours but I can see so many possibilities for parties and other seasonal events.

It is very easy to make. Stamp 6 medallions in your choice of colours. Mine were pink, peach, yellow, green, blue and plum on white CS but of course, you could use lightly printed DP or coloured CS too. Die cut the circles, FYI, the largest die of the large set of Nestabilities circles fits perfectly! Score your circles in half; I aligned my circles using the pattern to make sure they all were scored the same way. Glue one half of one circle to one half of the next circle. Make sure your glue is all over including very close to the fold line. Repeat until you are all the way around the circle except the last one. Tie a loop in your ribbon and lay the tail in the center of the ornament. Now glue the last circle halves together. Dress up your ribbon with die cuts, beads etc. I added a bow to the top of mine and Swarovski crystals to the bottom. It hangs much nicer when it isn’t rigged up funny for the camera.

Another idea I had was to punch holes in two opposing circles at the very top of the fold and assemble as usual except leave the last segment unglued. Write a message in there and thread the ribbon for hanging through the holes rather than threading it down the center. This would be really cool hanging from a bunch of balloons or even hung from a hospital bulletin board (some rooms have them). I hope you can think of TONS of uses for this gorgeous stamp! I know I look forward to continuing to use it long after this reveal is over!

  1. I can imagine that this ornament in masses would be so impactful and beautiful. I really like the added extra hanging on the bottom, it really finishes it off nicely.-Hotcakes on SB
