Mexico is home to so many talented metal artists who create amazing embossed metal art, works out of tin, and some stunning jewelry too. In honor of the upcoming Cinco De Mayo, I thought I’d share a Mexican inspired project with you today with these beautiful Tin-Like Stars using aluminium embossing foil.
I know that some of you may not interested in using metal for crafting. No worries. These same steps can be used to create these stars using metallic paper or a thin piece of cardboard from a cereal box that can be spray painted.
For this project you will need:
Note: To better illustrate this project I used two toned embossing foil. The front side of the project is aluminum colored and the back side of the project is a gold tone.
Note: If you are using paper or cardboard, the score lines shown in these pictures are just fold lines. There is no need to score a line – just fold.
These were fun to make and they look great. Add a string to hang them, attach them to a board and frame, or just display like I did.
If you enjoyed this project, we’d appreciate if you’d pin it. Thanks for sharing!
