Fun with Foil

We've had a little fun in third grade with foil embossing and who doesn't love pony beads :) With a theme of winter, we have the season and different  holidays represented. The students created their designs first on paper and then traced their designs onto thick art foil cushioned by a magazine. The designs were traced again directly onto the foil before the design was flipped and colored with Sharpie markers. To complete, the designs were trimmed and embellished with wire and beads.

The students were very excited to learn that this was not a portfolio project and could be taken home when complete. They were very proud of the "bling" that they had designed. It was fun for me to see them discover how the "carved" line became raised on the other side.
