Birds & Bees copper book

This is the finished copper book that I worked on embossing during Open Studios.
I decided to make a change to the books by backing the copper covers with painted grungeboard for extra stability. I really like the addition, giving the books a sturdy and clean finish.

    I love how your little book turned out. Did you pad the metal at all to keep the puffed out areas from crushing? How did you attach the covers? Did you glue it to the grungeboard? I love the subtle colors on the copper.
    Very nice!

  4. hi Lynne,
    sorry it has taken me awhile to respond my computer was in the shop. I did not put any filler in the metal. The copper is pretty firm. On my other blog Painted threads Projects I posted about gluing on the grungeboard.

Let me know what you think
