I started by attaching two strips at a time at one end (here after known as 'the top'). I completed this with all the strips for a total of 18 joined pieces.
Next I lined the strips up on a square inch grid, with the top on the left side of the grid. I put another glue dot on the inside of the strip at the seventh inch and at the right end (see purple indicators). I repeated this with the rest of the seventeen strips. Next, I took one of the joined pieces, placing a Glue Dot on the outside of the strip at the 3 1/2" mark and the 9 1/2" mark (see red indicators) and stacked the next piece on top. I repeated this with the rest of the pieces.
See how it's coming together?After all it's all stacked in a row, it'll look like this.I plan to hang this on a wall. To combat the weakness of the paper and its tendency to droop, I'm going to use fine pointed pins in several places to hold it up instead of hanging it by one point. --C
Once these are glued you can spread out the medalion and it looks like this: I like this in it's simplicity but it could be embelleshed in a lot of fun ways. It could probably also be made into a clock if you added another twelve strips, opening the center more.
