Halloween Paper Medallions

I'm furiously making decorations for our Halloween Party next Saturday and knew that I wanted some old fashioned paper medallions for my dining room window.  I think that Martha Stewart did some like this or maybe there was a kit you could buy at one time?

I decided that 3 would fit nicely and used old fashioned graphics for the center medallions.

Vintage Halloween, Paper Medallions







Here are the graphics that I put together with Picmonkey using vintage graphics from The Graphics Fairy and some I found on Google images.  Feel free to use these images on your own projects.




This is the same witch that I used for my Vintage Halloween Printable





Here are a couple more that I made but didn't use - 



The folded paper medallions are really easy to make with my Martha Stewart Scoring Board .

Here's what you need to make one medallion - 

     1 sheet scrapbook paper cut in to 3 - 4" strips 

     2 sheets of coordinating paper cut in to 4 1/2" strips - you will need 3 strips

     Border punch (if you so desire)

     Printed medallions

     Glue Gun

     Scrapbook adhesive



Here's a great tutorial on YouTube by UKMaryanne showing how to make the medallions - Watch Video Here




I think they turned out great and added just a little pop of Halloween to my dining room window. One more week till our party and I have a million more decorations that I want to make.  Oh well, have to save something for next year!
