Friday Focus ~ Metal Embellishments

Good Friday morning friends! Today I am sharing with you, a little pocket that can be filled with a gift card, chocolate, a note, etc. The product I am focusing on is metal embellishments. Linda has such darling little metal embellishments in her boutique, some rusty, some antique bronzed, different shapes sizes and themes. My favorite is the Rusted Metal Embellishments.
Rusted Metal Embellishments - Stars, Bells, Hearts,Bottle Caps, Tags & Signs - 34 Piece Set
I love every single piece in this assortment pack! The bottle caps, hearts, stars and oh my... the bells! But, I'm guessing you would like for me to get on with my project... right?
The thing with the Rusted Metal Embellishments is, you do not have to do anything to them... they have all the charm and shabby look to them. I used the large heart and one of the bottle caps then, brushed the outside edges with a little paint (vintage white) the brush was almost dry... meaning not very much paint.
Next, I used a square piece from the Mega Metals Value Set, these are antiqued bronzed filligrees. I brushed it with the same paint, only using a lot more paint.
For the bottle cap, I just punched out a circle from an image (using a one inch circle punch), machine stitched around the circle and adhered it to the inside of the bottle cap using a pop dot.
There you have it, my favorite product focus (not that we are suppose to use our favorite but, I just had to let you know). I wish I could share more than one product with you... the Sizzix Pocket Envelope Die is fabulous too!

Right now everything in the boutique is discounted 10% for the Memorial Day sale.  Starting Tuesday, May 29th, we'll revert back to our normal Friday Focus special and the rusty and filigree metals will be 15% off.  

Have a lovely day!
