Step 1: Draw the Idea
A holiday themed idea or an idea related to the winter season.
Step 2: Embossing the Aluminium Sheet
Place the aluminum sheet on a foam board and with a dull pencil, draw your holday or winter themed idea on the aluminum sheet. Press hard to get the texture effect but not too hard to avoid poking a hole through the sheet.
Step 3: Hole-punch the aluminium and tie with palstic string
Step 4: Mix a bit of paint with water to paint surface of aluminium

The processes of creating either raised or recessed relief images and designs in paper and other materials. An embossed pattern is raised against the background, while a debossed pattern is sunken into the surface of the material (but might protrude somewhat on the reverse, back side).
