Vague instructions.. this would be great as a video tutorial. There are WAY too many instructions to understand what you are trying to explain.

Would you be able to clarify some of the center medallion instructions? I don't understand what the embossing template is and what thickness should the copper plate be? It's confusing about using the cardstock and pewter. There's no mention of using ArtEmboss Pewter medium and Copper Light in the instructions. There's no mention of pewter metal in the materials. Removing adhesive backing from what? I also don't understand about clipping corners and folding to edges to back. Then there's mention later of cutting more pewter and applying to back. How do you adhere the wires and pewter? Just with double stick tape? Hope you can help!

Very nicely done. There are so many great pieces.
