Flower Embellishment Made from Die Cut Beer Cans and Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die


This embellishemnt was made by die cutting beer cans (as per THIS tutorial) The die i used was the Tim Holtz tattered florals sizzix die, this flower was made from the four flowers cut in one pass of the die


I then worked the flower shapes a bit on a foam mat usinf a embossing too, if you made lines along the flower when you turn the flower over the metal has much more of a flower texture


I just secured the petals with a brad, ready to adorna card or layout!
