The medallions are made with the Designer Rosette Bigz XL Die in the current Occasions Mini - when you use this die it cuts one edge with points and one edge with circles cut out; and the rosette ends up about 9-10" in diameter. So I just cut the strips in half to make two smaller medallions. I love the way it turned out.
The paper is Stampin' Ups "First Edition" specialty paper. I love this stuff as books and newprint paper are all the rage - but who wants to cut up a book or get newprint all over your fingers. This paper mimics that look, is printed on two sides, and is a bit lighter weight than our other papers - perfect for this look. I hope you can see the detail on this close up. I made another for a gift, and added the large pearls the centers of the buttons and it looked great. I might go back and add them to mine! Thanks for stopping by - see you soon!! ~Maureen
