- Step 1: Choose a Pattern and Print It
Choose a medallion to make. There is one pattern which includes
all six medallion templates, and two patterns for green and red
medallions that coordinate with
Stripe ePaper. Download and print the pattern. Make
templates by printing directly on cardstock or print on paper and
transfer the pattern
to lightweight cardboard. Print the colored medallions to plain
paper or glossy photo paper.
Patterns are Adobe PDF files. The
Adobe Reader is available for free.
All of Aunt Annie's Crafts project patterns are designed to be printed on standard letter size paper (8.5"x11" or A4).
When printing from Adobe Reader, you may need to select "Auto-Rotate and Center" or
"Choose paper source by PDF page size" to ensure the best fit.

medallion. Use a small plastic ruler with a
sharp edge to fold the medallion over. Repeat for each point.
fold the medallion wrong side out from each inwards point (valley) to inwards
point, through the center. Repeat all the way around.
Refold the point to point
folds to make sure they are crisp and prominent. The medallions
should take on a three-dimensional shape after folding.
- Step 5: Glue
To make a double medallion, glue a small medallion on top of a
large medallion. Just a few spots of glue on some of the large
medallion's peaks should be enough.
To attach the medallion to a gift
package, place a little glue on the medallion's underside and press
