I’m a huge fan of paper medallions. If you get some edge punchers (I love the Martha Stewart ones) you can really make them look insanely gorgeous. My recommendation is to score the pleats, then punch along one edge, then fold them. Glue them together to make large size medallions 🙂

Are these copies or originals? As a musician and music historian, I’d cry to see orignal music copies destroyed.

@JenGirl:  LOL! No problem! Just PM me if you need any tips. I’ve been working on figuring out the quickest/best way to make them for another project and I think I have a good skillset under my belt now! The paper puncher on the edge makes a HUGE difference.

Ooh and another gorgeous thing I found was with paper cones. You can do the wreath:

*You could do your monogram in a centre medallion, so pretty!*

Or I love this paper cone chrysanthemum.

Old sheet music – SCORE! Haha, Bazinga! (To quote the lovely Sheldon Cooper!)

I’m thinking about staining/painting sheet music to use for envelope liners. Not sure I’ll do a color, or just giving them an antique look (tea staining, etc), maybe with a shimmer finish. Anyway, it’s cool!

hi anyone think that I can use paper medallions (gold and white) for the backdrop for my friend’s greco-roman themed wedding? do they fit?

@jens2dlo:  I think you could use them. The folded paper resembles the fluted columns.

I do suggest that you consider starting a new thread. Many Bees will look at the old date of this thread and skip right over it.

@ohmybears48:  +1. I’d feel the same way too. Fiance has to literally drag me away when there’s a box of old sheet music at the antique mall. I would be reading the music, trying to decide whether to buy and play it. 🙂
