Snapping Monsters: My Other Creations: Metal Tart Tin Medals

My Other Creations: Metal Tart Tin Medals

When I saw that this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge theme was Patterned Paper, I decided to make some medals with colorful paper "ribbons": The metal portion of my medals started out as mini tart tins that I found at a thrift store. I smashed them flat (which did pain me a smidge, I will admit) and used that as my starting point. The paper centers of my medals were punched with a 2" circle punch. The bird is from patterned paper (the Painted Passport collection), while the…
