Twirled Twine Card Trio!

It's Michelle here today with a new to me technique...I'm calling it twirled twine...because that is basically all you do!  I'm also calling this 3D Thursday as I am not stamping at all...just playing with twine!

MarkerPOP has opened a new site and here is a little bit about them:

This is a thin twine which I liked for this technique as it did not add a lot of bulk to my card.  I did not find that the twine untwisted while I worked with it. 

How could I not like this screamed Green Bay Packers to me!  I can see these medallions as fun to use on cards or in scrapbooks....or even on ornaments or banners or other fun decor elements.

 Here is how I did it:

1. Start with a cardstock circle and then trim a red-lined tape sheet circle the same size. 
2.  Attach the tape circle to the cardstock circle and punch a hole in the middle.
3.  Feed your baker's twine through the center and then tape the tail to the back.
4.  I added a glue dot to fill in the hole again.
I switched photos on you....I forgot to photograph the process the first this is a second medallion in the works on a black cardstock circle.

5.  You can see I started wrapping the twin around keeping it firm and smooth and I go.
6.  When you get to the outside edge, just wrap the tail to the back and tape again.
7.  Add your fun medallion to your project!
