Project: Snowman Metal Ornament

 Here is another ornament I made for the tree this year.
 I started out by embossing my image with a snowman shape onto red metal paper.

I sanded the embossed image to make it look worn and to highlight the image.  Then, I cut around it with deckle edge scissors.

 I took a small block of wood and colored it with ink.  Then, I wrapped it with burlap.  I added some super tacky clear glue and waited for the burlap to dry.
Then, I attached the snowman image with the same glue.

And here is my cute little snowman!
