2. Make creases every 1/2 inch with a bone folder to create the accordion style. With double-sided tape, connect the two pieces to form one long strip. Use a needle and thread to sew through each panel at one end. Pull the thread so the strip forms a circle, and tie. Join the first and last panels with double-sided tape.

3. Punch a 2-inch circle from card stock (we like Uchida's 2-inch circle punch,; hot-glue it to the back of the medallion. Print the drink label (download it here), and hot-glue it to the medallion's front. Cut a ribbon to go around the drink vessel, and two for tails. Attach with glue.
