Cut two 12-inch-squares of paper in half to make 4 strips. Punch one long edge of each strip.
Lay strip on score board, with length perpendicular to score lines. Identify a "valley" or "peak" in the edge-punched design, and score paper on every other valley or peak. Flip strip over and score again, between scored valleys or peaks. Repeat for all strips.
Place a piece of double-sided tape on each short edge of the accordion-folded strips. Tape one strip to another, end to end, lining up design. Flatten out resulting tube, forming a circular medallion.
Add a dab of hot glue to center of medallion to secure in place; place a household item (such as a glass, bottle, or plate) on center to hold while glue cools.
Create a decorative center with punches, and glue to center of medallion.
