Spellbinders Ruffled Flower Medallion Tutorial

Do you remember this ensemble?  Well so many people asked how to make it that I finally have the tutorial ready.  Here we go!!

Supply List:

Spellbinders Large Scalloped Octagons Scissors
Two sided design paper Invisible tape
Bone folder or optional Scorpal Long reach hole punch
Large Brad or Threaded Button Glue Dots

A friendly reminder, it takes a lot to put together pics and such for tutorials and I offer this tutorial up in the spirit of sharing.  Most people are grateful and offer credit where credit is due.  Because others may want to sample my other tutorials, I encourage and welcome link backs to this tutorial, you do not have to ask permission.

Using Spellbinders Scalloped Large Octagons, cut/emboss one of the largest size, cut/emboss three of the second largest size and cut/emboss three of the second from smallest size.  Set the largest scalloped octagon aside, we will use it later.

(Optional) To prepare your cut shapes for scoring, align the flat edge of the scalloped octagon shape with the top of your Scorpal.

Score straight down through the shape.  This score line will fall between the second and third scallop on each flat side of the octagon.

Each scalloped octagon will have four scored lines.

Using a long reach punch, set a hole in the center of each octagon, this will prevent the paper from tearing when folding.  Then snip along one score line down to the center cut hole.

Fold each of the three pieces of the medallion.  The first fold will be a mountain fold where the fold will rise above the cut edge.

Alternate mountain folds with valley folds so that each piece looks the same as that shown below.

With a bone folder, burnish the edge of each fold so they are sharp and crisp.

Using invisible scotch tape, place one piece of tape underneath your first piece of medallion with the sticky side facing up.  The tape will end up on the underneath side of the medallion and fairly inconspicuous.

Marry the second piece of your medallions to the first by placing side by side on the upward facing sticky side of the tape.

Do the same with each seam.  There will be a total of three seams.

Cut a center hole in the scalloped octagon piece that we set aside.

Put glue dots on the bottom of your medallion.  I found that six glue dots was plenty, one on every other fold.

Flip medallion over and secure it to the bottom piece that had been set aside.

Construct another medallion using the three small scalloped octagons


Seat the smaller medallion on top of the larger medallion, matching folds.

Put an embellishment like a brad or threaded button through the aligned center holes.

Voila!!!  Your medallion is finished, it just needs to be adhered to something.  These can be made in any size and can also be made with round scallops however the scalloped octagons are easier to work with and look prettier in my humble opinion.  You can add as many layers as you want and if you want a more rufflier medallion, thow in another folded piece.

Here’s what I did with this one.  I’m done buying bows for gift bags — too often the bow cost more than the bag . . .  Now I have a very cost effective alternative.  I hope you enjoy making medallions, once you get used to the process, they move along very quickly.

    What can I say, Becca? That technique is absolute genius. Your card and bag are stunning!!!ReplyCancel

  • EdnaJanuary 30, 2009 - 9:55 pm

    Totally speechless when I saw you graceful heart corner punch is not working on corners, but being a round-about-fence to the JustRite-stamped-circled Valentine heart.

    And you are absolutely right, the octagon spellbinder, so some of the “petals” are standing out, and make them look more “wave-y”

    It is amazing grace that our Heavenly Father has gift-en to you. Glory be to Him.

  • VioletJanuary 30, 2009 - 9:58 pm

    Love it! It would definitely replace expensive bows – and prettier! You are one talented lady!ReplyCancel

    This design is great and so are you. I seen it in papercaft. I tried doing it by myself but could not get it right. There was no email address about you so I search your name and found your site. The turtorial is great also and now I won’t have to buy any bows.

    Also I did mind with spellbinder circles and folded them without the scro-pal for those of you who don’t have the scro-pal or the die cut you can do it with just a circle cut and foldReplyCancel

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! My friend showed me this neat ad she had ripped from her magazine as she wanted to learn how to do these beautiful flower designs and she asked me to see if I could find it for her on the internet. So for the past month I have been searching and today I hit paydirt. It is so well explained that I think she will be thrilled to be able to recreate this piece of great artistry. Hey, I printed it off for her and I am glad I can refer to this as well. I might have to try it myself. You are such an amazingly talented lady. God bless you. VernaReplyCancel

    Thank you for the wonderful tutorial! I bought these dies this past weekend when the store owner showed me a card with one of these flower medallions on it, but I didn’t quite understand the directions. Now I don’t need to try to re-invent the wheel.

    Hi Becca

    Loved your cards they are great. I am looking for instructions for a snowflake made with the Fluer de Lis Pendant, could you please help me out as to what site I could go to.


  • DiannaJanuary 15, 2010 - 4:07 pm

    These flowers are just wonderful. I am attempting to follow your basic instructions and instead use the scalloped circle (I don’t have the octagon YET). Your tutorial is just amazing. Thank you for sharing your time and talents with us.ReplyCancel

    this is a very beautiful flower and easy to follow instructions. i have put off purchasing spellbinder dies for one simple reason (ok, 2 reasons). i bought the first wizard and tried as hard as i could to make it work for me. my problem lies in my arthritis. i did not know that they would come out with a much easier to handle red one later on. so i simply forgot about them. as of late (the last year at least) i have noticed them more and more and more on so many pieces of art. i am now going to start investing in them little by little and i like the set you used for these flowers. you have helped me decide which to buy first. thank you for the tutorial and the decision-making process.ReplyCancel
