METAL FLOWERS


It's a fun challenge at The Paper Plunge!  Add some metal to your project or card!  You probably have some metal buttons or brads or hodgepodge among your stash!  How about using them and adding them to our challenge site?  My sis LOVES to alter altoid tins, maybe she will join us with her designs! HINT HINT!  

Pop on over to The Paper Plunge and see what we are up to on a weekly basis! 

A few years ago I posted a video to make Garden Stakes with butterflies.  I think you can view that video and see how easy it is to make these flowers.  I colored the Facetted Buttons and Metal Flowers with alcohol markers.  Stampin' Up! does NOT carry them at this time, but you can improvise with your favorite brand or use a permanent marker. 

The hanging garden markers can be viewed HERE.









Supplies Used:
(Stampin' Up! in BOLD)

Sheet Metal (roofing sheet metal @ hardware store)
Faucetted Buttons
Wire Stems
Alcohol Markers
Hot Glue Gun
Decorative Dots & Spring Flowers Embossing Folders
Flower Frenzy Bigz Die
