Today I have a cute little craft using very simple hand embossing on copper and aluminium tooling foil that creates a beautiful more rustic look for spring with these Copper and Aluminium embossed flowers. I have these beauties in my kitchen, but they would look great anywhere, even outside.
Info on Metal Used: People have asked me if the metal I use has sharp edges. This tooling metal (38 gauge) is pretty soft and pliable. It cuts easily with ordinary household scissors and is slightly thicker than a disposable tin foil backing pan. As long as your cut edges are clean, you shouldn’t have any issues handling the metal. Don’t get me wrong, if you rub the side of the metal in just the wrong way, you will get cut, just like you would with paper and the resulting paper cut.
