Tricked out Packaging – embossed tins

Sometimes the packaging should be “extra”

Don’t you think? When a gift is extra special, we spend tend to spend more time to make sure the packaging is “just so”. Whether it’s gift wrap that is done perfectly, or maybe something a little more, like a souped up tin, the detail put into the packaging can let the recipient know they’re going to find something amazing inside!

Stunning results in no time

If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you know that I don’t usually stray from cardmaking. but, as a member of the Imagine Artist in Residence for the year, I have all of these non-card ideas floating around. So many of their products lend themselves to mixed media and other types of art, that playing around in other mediums is really fun!

This gift packaging was ridiculously simple too! Embossing on metal is just like embossing on any other material. You just need to take the time to prepare the surface with lots of anti-static powder. Adding in a little tag and some ribbon really finished off the look.

Like this project? Check out another cool way you can use embossing powder in your crafting!

Crafter’s Toolbox

So, let’s add a new technique to your toolbox – embossing on metal. Instead of stamping then embossing, I used a stencil to cover the area, but the technique is the same either way!

Let’s heat it up!

Now that you’ve seen how fun and easy the technique is, I bet you’re ready to create some embossed metal projects of your own.
