Start by making cones out of your papers. Tip: make one and then use it as a template for the others. Here's what they will look like.
(I used scrapbook paper because it was the perfect size!)
Try and make your cones about the same width. They don't have to be pointy at the bottom so don't spend too much time!
Arrange them how you'd like over your piece of cardboard. The BYOG crafters drew circles on their cardboard to help them...I'm not that fancy. Glue down until you've used up your cones. I put some of mine as a second layer on top since they didn't fit on my cardboard.
Take your smaller strip of cardboard and cut it into pieces. At the same time, with your other hand, (just kidding!) cut out your image on cardstock. Don't glue yet!
Stack your cardboard pieces (you can glue now) until your cardstock image clears the cones. You don't want the medallion to be crinkled or crumped <-- word? Word. Then place the plastic-y velcro on the top cardboard strip.
Place the soft velcro on the back of the medallion. This makes it interchangeable, and you can just make a new medallion for different seasons or holidays. As an optional addition, crump/crunch/scrunch some crepe paper around the medallion to make a border, secure with hot glue.
Last but not least, hot glue some ribbon to the bottom cardboard piece. Hang, et voila!
A beautiful paper wreath.
