Iron Craft


I was definitely uninspired with the iron craft challenge. In the end, I made 3 items that are so-so at best. (Guess that's why we're called wayward.)
The first one is an inspiration jar. I covered the lid with aluminum tape (which I LOVE!) then  antiqued it by holding it over a candle flame. I used tiny strips of the tape with power words written on them. They looked engraved. I used a black wire to loop around and hold the medallions.





My second craft used the feathers, the flowers, and a bit of T-shirt to cushion the back of the clip on the baby's head.
Finally, I planned a bookmark from the shrinky dink-- but didn't realize how much it would shrink. I ended up with a small rectangle I decided would be a magnet. I edged it with the aluminium tape (something I will definitely do again, but taking a little more care to make it even and straight) and attached a strip of magnet on the back. The end!
