Metal Ornament Tutorial

Last Tutorial of the Season....
 Here is a fun, quick and easy ornament that I made from a sheet of metal.  The ornament is about 4 inches round and is very striking on a tree.  I cut out the ornament in different shapes.
 The shapes were from my die cutter collection (birds, flowers, ornaments).  They cut well and were a bit sharp around the edges.
 Then, I embossed them, by rubbing some on embossing plates, and others I drew on with a stylus.
 I attached the flowers to some of the ornaments and then went and hung them on the tree.
 Here is one I just drew a grid across.
 Here is one that I embossed a ribbon around the center.
 This one was embossed and then I attached a pretty bird to the front and back.
 Here is one with flowers.
 Here are just the flowers on the tree.
And lastly, the solid gold ornament complete with gold flowers.
