- Paper Mache Letter (I used the 23.5 inch)
- Aluminum Roll
- Embossing Machine
- Embossing Folder (I used a Steampunk Gears design)
- Brown Craft Paint
- Mod Podge
Step one: Cut the aluminum into sheets that will fit your embossing folder. Mine was 4×6.
Step two: Emboss the aluminum. I found that I could place 3 sheets in my folder at one time to speed up the process.
Step four: Lightly paint over the metal, being sure to work the paint into the recessed parts. Use a clean cloth to wipe off some of the paint. This helps give your metal a more aged, interesting look, I think.
You could use different shapes to make it match the theme of your room or party. There are hundreds of embossing folders to choose from, so it will be easy to make letter decor that is as unique as you are!
