If you are looking for a quick and easy craft to do with the kids, look no further. I have just the thing for you.
This copper embossed picture.
It's hard to photograph this at night. I should have done it in the day, but, you will get the idea.
All you need is, a piece of copper paper, four Popsicle sticks stained brown, four leaf charms and a piece of ribbon.
Draw or copy a picture to the size you need. You can do whatever picture you like, this is a simple oak tree with swirls. You could even write something. However, if you do, it will need to be copied backwards so it shows up the right way when you turn it over.
Place your picture on top of the copper paper. Be sure you turn the copper paper over so it will show on the copper side.
Trace the picture with a pen. I found doing it on a place mat was easier. It allowed the copper to be embossed easier.
Take your paper off. You will see your picture as you drew it.
Then turn it over to the copper side and you will see it nicely embossed.
Glue your Popsicle sticks on to make a frame, add your leave charms and the ribbon on the back so you can hang your picture up.
Let it all dry before you move it.
