Last night, my daughter #2 came home for a visit. She is just weeks away from her college graduation and I’m so proud of her! We decided that a movie marathon was in order because I had just picked up the third Hunger Games Movie DVD. And better yet, my daughter was delighted to help me with this project while we watched the movies.
I’ll have to apologize in advance for my tutorial and pictures this week. My daughter and I talked, laughed, watched the movie while working on this project. Needless to say, we didn’t take many pictures and the ones we did take were not taken with best lighting.
Tutorial for Copper Leaf Wreath
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.
