The two flowers near the top have one coat of embossing powder. Notice on the bottom flower, I used 2 coats and it caused the embossing powder to crack. I like the look of both but if you don't like the cracked look, one coat will suffice.
Another close up.
Use caution as these are aluminum and the edges may be sharp.
Here's how to make your own.
Start with an aluminum can. I used wire cutters to cut through where the drink hole was. Scissors work well for the rest of the cutting on the can.
Cut the top and bottom off the can. You'll end up with a rectangular piece that is ready to diecut.
Using VersaMark Pigment Pad rub the entire surface of the flower, sprinkle with embossing powder and heat emboss.
Repeat these steps for each flower.
Using a paint brush handle, curl the petals.
Use Helmar 450 Quick dry in between the layers of the flower.
Add a bead or pearl to the center, if desired.
Easy Peasy, huh? Now you can make your own metal flowers! The best part is, it's eco-friendly and costs very little :) Let me know if you give it a try...I'd love to see :)
