This months Crafty What Nots box was called 'Autumn Glory'. I can't reveal all the contents quite yet as they will hopefully be arriving today and don't want to spoil any surprises. However!!!!! I did want to include this little tutorial but thought I would share it with you all too.
Embossed metal leaves
You will need ~ metal sheet, embossing ball tool, ruler, thick card.
Step 1 ~ Place your metal sheet on the card and draw a leaf shape with your embossing ball tool
Step 2 ~ Cut out your leaf. Unless you are super neat (which I wasn't) you will find that the lines you embossed may not look as neat anymore, so using the flat edge of a ruler try to flatten the metal as much as possible. Do this both sides.
Step 3 ~ Use your tool to draw patterns on your leaves. Here are a few I have made. You can really get creative and if you make a mistake just rub the ruler over and flatten it again!
Step 4 ~ Think of something to do with your leaves!!! Maybe hang them from fishing line or mount them on cards!
Have any of you used metal sheet before?? What have you made?
I'm popping over to say to all the lovelies at handmade Monday, so pop by and say hi.
