Cardstock (heavier weight paper)
Text weight paper (lighter weight paper)
Foam core board (or corrugated cardboard)
Cloth ribbon, hot glue gun & glue (optional)
Craft knife and cutting mat
1.Cut two circles from cardstock, one slightly larger than the other. The circles used in the video measure approximately 5 ¾” in diameter and 5” in diameter and were created by tracing the lids of jars. These will form the back and front of the upper portion of the ribbon known as the medallion.
2.Cut three long strips of cardstock paper to form the ribbons that hang down from the base of the medallion. The strips used in the video measure 11” long – two measured approximately 2” in width and one 1 ¾” in width. One end of the two wider strips were trimmed at an angle: to do this, measure 1 ½” up on one end and then using a ruler and pencil draw a straight line down to the opposing corner and cut along this line. One end of the thinner strip was cut into an inverted V-shape: to do this, measure 1 ½” up on both sides of one end, using a ruler draw a straight line across those two points, mark the center point and from that draw straight lines down to the two corners and cut along those lines.
3.Arrange these three ribbons and using glue stick attach them to the bottom of the large circle.
4.To create the paper loops that decorate the edges of the medallion, cut strips of text weight paper in three sizes. The strip of paper used in the video measured: 1” x 6”, 1” x 5” and 1” x 4 ¼”. The number of loops needed with be determined by the size of your circle.
5.Begin with the longest strips, gently bend the ends together and secure them with a staple. Draw a line of glue stick around the outer edge of the large circle and place the stapled ends of your loops along this glue line. Secure the fronts of your loops with a piece of tape. This forms the outermost ring of loops around your medallion.
6.Repeat the previous step using the medium size strips, bending them around and stapling the ends together. These loops will form the second or center ring of loops around your medallion. Position the loops between each of the longer loops and secure them with tape.
7.Repeat the previous step using the smallest size strips, bending them around and stapling the ends together. These loops will form the third or innermost ring of loops around your medallion. Position the loops between each of the medium loops and secure them with tape.
8.Cut a circle of foam core board the same size, or slightly smaller than, the smaller cardstock circle that creates the front of your medallion. Carefully cut the foam core board using a craft knife on top of a cutting mat. Apply glue stick to one side of the foam core circle and adhere it to the center of the medallion.
9.Fold a small piece of cardstock in half and cut out half of a heart shape. Unfold and use this heart as a template to trace and cut a heart out of a piece of text weight paper. Using glue stick adhere the heart to the center of the cardstock circle that will form the front of your medallion.
10.Apply glue stick to the second side of the foam core circle and position and adhere the small cardstock circle on top.
11. OPTIONAL: To hang your gratitude ribbon on the wall, consider adding a hanging loop to the back of the medallion. Cut a strip of cloth ribbon, fold in half to form a loop and hot glue the cut ends to the back of the medallion. To make your work look neater, consider cutting a cardstock circle and adhering it over the glued ends of the cloth ribbon.
*Your gratitude ribbons can be created as large or as small as you’d like – just adjust the proportions accordingly.
*Solid color papers were used to create the ribbons in the video, but know that you can use patterned paper as well.
*If you don’t have access to foam core, you can utilized corrugated cardboard from recycled packaging to create the core of the medallion.
*Consider writing a message or the name of the recipient on the face of the medallion.
http://www.graybar.com/manufacturers/service-wire/interlocked-armor?utm_source=youtube&utm_medium=video&utm_content=service-wire-interlocked-armor&utm_campaign=esp-video Service Wire’s Feeder MC armored cables allow for high mechanical protection and durability while offering a cost effective option to pipe and wire. The advantages of Service Wire’s non-jacketed Feeder MC are simple: we use a superior product, we have better inventory and most importantly, there are cost and labor savings when using our product as compared to traditional conduit and wire.
Service Wire offers Feeder MC in galvanized or aluminum interlocked armor. It is helically wound around the conductors and allows for unlimited bends. MC cables are also phase identified for easy installation. We offer PVC, CPE and low-smoke zero halogen jackets over the armor. We also furnish watertight and nonwatertight connectors for our cables.
They are scrolled allowing them to be easily spun onto the armor. There’s no conduit needed, no labor to install the conduit, and no elbows or couplings. There’s no wire lube needed; no bending machines and no unloading or storing of the conduit.
You’ll use less pulling equipment, fewer reels and less time spent setting up the pulls. These advantages can mean labor savings of up to 75% and material savings up to 35% versus pipe and wire.
It’s easy to identify opportunities for Feeder MC, because it can be used in any project using pipe and wire. Industries that use Feeder MC include tenant build outs, large commercial projects, university housing, data centers and retail space.
