Tips:

-Layer 2 crepe paper medallions together for a thicker piece.

-Add an old clip earring to the medallion center

-Add an image to the medallion or an image head, seal with a clear page pebble.

-Instead of a flower use the stitched crepe and seam binding strip as trim for a page or for a doll skirt.

The possibilities are endless, here is an example of a scrapbook page layout I created using crepe paper medallions that I made using crepe paper, my doll parts and my scrapbook paper.
