Dahlia Paper Medallion

 

Isn’t this Dahlia beautiful???  I just love these pretty tea bag folds and our Designer Series Paper is just perfect for it!  I don’t know about you, but I have so much DSP and don’t use it often enough – this is a perfect use for it.  It adds lots of interest to a card.

For today’s card I used the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch again and punched out 8 circles for the medallion.  Here’s a link to the tutorial for the Dahlia Fold.  I also used another circle punch-out to adhere the 8 folded pieces to – makes it easy to add to the card front as well as affix a brad to the center.

It was looking very, Very Vanilla, so I sponged the card using Always Artichoke.  The pearls were a last-minute add-in.

You should try this paper folding technique – get your DSP, a circle punch, and your bone folder and fold away!
