Little Something Sunday with Jennifer Longenecker

These little achievement medallions have become all the rage this last year at CHA so I thought I would show you how to make one using cupcake liners and an American Crafts Flair button.

I worked with the American Crafts Campy line, but here are a few others that have buttons:

October Afternoon 5& Dime Tin Pins
October Afternoon Rocket Age Tin Pins

Grab your supplies:
cupcake liners
Flair button
scrap paper

Step 1: flatten out the three cupcake liners that you want to use as the back of your medallion.

Step 2: Use a circle template and draw a circle on the second set of cupcake liners, then cut along the line. Make sure you keep the scraps, because you will use them in a later step.

Step 3: Take your scrap piece of paper and draw a circle on the reverse side just slightly smaller than the cupcake liners you just cut. Cut the circle out and then draw another circle with-in that circle.

Step 4: Take your scissors and cut slits to the inner circle to create a fringe effect.

Step 5: Glue your flair button to the front of the scrap piece of paper.

Step 6: Glue the piece you just worked on to the smaller cupcake liners.

Step 7: Glue what you have finished so far to the final set of cupcake liners.

Step 8: Grab your ribbon and the excess from the second set of cupcake liners and staple them together to form a tail.

Step 9: Glue your ribbon tail to your medallion with a hot glue gun and then attach another circle from your scrap paper and attach a metal clip.
