Christmas stamp a stack, part 3, Project 3

Hi all
This card looks simple but some of the ladies found it a real challenge. 

I had pre-scored the Designer Series paper every 1/4" using my Simply Scored tool - wow is that a wonderful tool!  Then I cut perpendicular to the scored lines every 1" - that gave me 12 - 1" wide pieces of scored DSP - If you make the mistake of cutting the strips first, you will have to do all that scoring on each individual sheet - yawn!!  Anyway, then fold accordian style on each scored mark. You glue one end of the strip to the other to form a continuous loop.  Next, you flatten it out to form the medallion.  If you lay the circle down with the side you want to show face down, you can attach a circle to the back to hold the design in place.  Then we layered the medallion onto another scalloped circle.  The button has baker's twine through the holes and then the button was stuck to the medallion using glue dots.  Again, this is the kind of card you can work on in various stages and settings, getting ready for the final assembly. 
I think it has a fun and fresh look - and just think of how great it would be to use up you leftover strips of DSP in such a fun way!!
