Calling all Hot Metal Mama's!

Well, after searching for the clocks that I really wanted to alter for our class this month, I finally found some but couldn't acquire enough for all of us to enjoy! So I gave up on that particular project and opted to create this
 Metallicious Domed Star!
It has a flat back and stands 12 in. tall.
You will have your own choice of paper and metal for this month's project and I will be teaching you a "Double Emboss" technique that you can use with the TSS molds or the Sizzix/Cuttlebug Folders. Here is a closer look...
