Brown kraft paper (or brown bags)
Kitchen aluminum foil
Marking pen (or other smooth surface to rub the surface of the foil)
Embossing folder and die cut or embossing machine
Scissors
Small hole punch (for jump rings)

1. Using the Aleene’s Tacky Double-Stick Sheets as a pattern for size, cut three pieces of kraft paper and two pieces of foil slightly larger than the Double-Stick Sheets.

2. Use the Double-Stick Sheets to glue the three layers of kraft paper together.

3. Glue one piece of foil to each side of the layered paper.

4. Use the side of the pen to rub the entire surface of the foil so that all of the layers are firmly adhered right out to the edge. Using the Double-Stick Sheets as a straight edge, cut away excess foil and kraft paper.

5. Run layered paper through embossing machine to create texture.

6. Cut to desired shapes and sizes.

    Looking for directions to glue string/yarn designs on wood boxes, cover with tinfoil and then use black paint and rub so box looks like antique. I believe it was in a craft/homemaking magazine years ago and now we want to do this with our teen Girl Scouts.

    Thanks,
