  1. Gather your supplies.
  2. Cut a strip of double-sided gift wrap 2″ wide by 24″ long.
  3. Accordion fold the paper in about 1/2″ wide folds continuing the length of the paper strip.
  4. Apply the glue stick to both 2″ ends and glue together creating a cylinder.  Allow to dry for a few minutes.
  5. Flatten cylinder to create a circular medallion.  Using your glue gun, apply a small dot of hot glue in the center of the medallion and hold circle together for a few seconds to allow glue to harden.
  6. Using your 2 1/2″ round punch, cut two circles out of the gift wrap.  Using your glue gun, adhere one circle to each side of the medallion.  We chose to use the opposite design on each side.
  7. Cut a 6″ piece of ribbon and notch one end.
  8. Glue ribbon and pin to the back of the medallion.
  9. If you’d like, print Little Yellow Couch’s Fan Club Titles on card stock.  Using your 2″ round punch (or scissors), cut out the circle.  Glue to the center of the front of your medallion.
  10. Go make someone’s day!
