Holiday Craft-medallion ornaments

I recently googled and found out how to make these after wondering for quite awhile how people were making these. Now I'm addicted to making them, the process is simple and fun and then I love adding the decorations and tinsel to them and making them sparkly.

The directions:
     For the paper I like vintage music and book sheets and scrapbook paper...
1. cut a piece of paper 4 1/4x 6 3/4 inches then fold accordian style about 1/2 in at time lengthwise
2. then fold that in half
3. use hot glue to attach the folds together
4. then hot glue all the pieces together (make 3 or 4 pieces glued together)
   Tip you can also experiment with all different sizes of paper for a different look
    Then use hot glue to add tinsel, paper, stickers and embellishments and have fun decorating
    Attach ribbon to the back with hot glue or tape

Art Journaling...

On this most recent page I found some little sentences that I cut out of Victoria Magazine and they felt like little New Year wishes....In praise of creative pursuits, Growing a business, A sharing of Hearts and Hands, At home with nature, An indoor garden, Read with tea, Pen & Paper, Original jewelry, Where Flowers Gather Friends
 These pages are the inspiration of a peaceful art space...
 and here is just a simple to do list and watercolor inspiration, a photo from victoria magazine of an inspirational watercolor artist...
and these last pages are a quote I like, I'm not sure who and a simple little holiday list cut out from magazines, and a pretty cup of tea.

holiday journal

This year I will follow along with Hope Wallace Karney on her December Daily-Reverb 13 journal, she posts a question everyday to help you look back on the past year and look forward to the coming year, so this is the cover of mine and then I prepared the 31 different days and bound it all with rings. It was fun putting it all together ahead of time and now it's all ready for the holiday season. I will include journal writing and pictures in it.
