I found a new craft material, brass sheets. You can cut these with kitchen shears and create virtually anything you like. I have been experimenting with brass leaves and this is the first iteration, brass leaf napkin rings. There is a template for the leaf shape and in a few short minutes you too can create a modern leaf napkin ring. Alternately, how cool would these leaves be as a boutineer or as an addition to a floral bouquet? I have a whole roll of this brass sheeting and I intend to use it. So stay tuned in the coming weeks for more ways to use this insanely awesome brass. Check out the full tutorial over on Minted's blog Julep.
