The Championing Award Medallion Challenge!!

Hi Peeps!

I’m going to make this a quick visit today, as I’m on my way out to my mother in law’s to clean her house before she arrives on Saturday.  Her winter home has been closed up since last spring, and I’m sure it could use a good cleaning before she comes back for the winter.  Enough blah, blah, blah from me . . . I’ll come back later to fill in the product details.
Moxie Medallion Challenge
I had a BLAST participating in one of the latest Moxie Fab World Challenges – the Championing Award Medallion Challenge.  I’ve Moxie Medallion Graphicworked with these medallions before, but kind of struggle with how to utilize them in unique ways.  It occurred to me that it would make a super cute snowman face.  Cute, right?!  I cut the eyes, hat, nose and hat band with my Silhouette.

PRODUCTS USED:

STAMPS:  Polka Dot Basics (PTI), Winter Wonderland (Taylored Expressions)
INK:  Fresh Snow (PTI), Onyx Black VersaFine (Tsukineko)
PAPER:  Sno Cone CS (French Poptone), Linen Vellum (PTI), Black, Orange and Turquoise CS (Bazzill Basics)
ACCESSORIES:  Green Felt (Impress Rubber Stamps), Glittery Dots (Doodlebug), Buttons (PTI), Charcoal Baker's Twine (The Twinery), Blooming Rosette Die (Memory Box), Hot Glue Gun, Silhoutte Electronic Die Cut Machine, Snowman Treat Bag (Silhouette Studio)
I'd like to add a few tips as to how to create these fun little medallions.  My experience has been that when you fold them and adhere the ends together, it's difficult to get the adhesive to actually stick because of the tension of the accordion fold.  I stapled mine together.  I also adhered the medallion to a circle backer with a hot glue gun, because I just couldn't get it to stick and stay otherwise.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a great day!
