Hello! Kristen here with a little tutorial for you on making an accordion fold so that you can make an accordion medallion. I used Bobunny's Kitchen Spice collection to make my card.
You will need:
A card blank
a scoring blade and ruler or Scor It board
various papers/etc for your card.
First you will cut a 12x2 inch strip of paper.
Then you will score at 1/8 inch increments down the entire 12 inch strip.
Every other score, you will flip the paper, so that you will score the front, then the back and so on with your scoring.
When the entire strip is scored, gently fold the paper along the scores back and forth, in accordion style.
When the paper has been folded, take each end, apply a thin strip of glue and glue them together. Let dry a few minutes, then gently force the paper to fan out by pushing gently down at the same time on the bottom, while gathering the folds together at the top. This takes some practice, but will eventually come together.
Then add glue dots to a small scrap of paper, and place over the center point of the accordion.
You can now place your accordion on your card, as I have done here. I usually place something in the middle of the accordion to cover over the middle, so that the glue dots do not show.
