I didn’t have much luck cutting out the copper on my Cricut. The thought of all that embossing was daunting plus the cutting out was too much. I figured out after rearranging the leaves using the SVG and changing the whole design to scoring I could use my Cricut scoring stylus to not only score the veins but mark the outline for easy hand cutting. It has made this beautiful wreath doable for me. I think it is lovely and can hardly wait to put it together. Thanks for the SVG file!
Okay, Mary. . . that is BRILLIANT! I think we should do more copper embossed projects. Thanks for YOUR inspiration!
When cutting the copper leaves on a cricut, do you have to resize the leaves from the svg file or are they the correct size for the wreath? Thanks!
You should not have to resize, however we have noticed some SVGs are being resized in Design Space (really not sure why!) These leaves are approx. 2×3 and 2×3.75 🙂
Hi, I might have missed it, but did you mention how many copper sheets you used for the project?
Thanks in advance.
We ended up using 2 sheets!
Do you know if the Cricut Maker could emboss and cut the copper foil?
We haven’t tried that yet, Jennifer. Would be so great if it did…! You should reach out to Cricut’s customer service for that one. Thanks!
The Cricut help section on the Cricut website says the Maker will cut ‘Metal – 40 gauge thin copper’. Is this the type of material used in this project? If so, could you add an SVG file so I could try it? Thank you
We have updated the post to include an SVG file for cutting! We did use 40 gauge thin copper for this project, let us know how it turns out for you. 🙂
[…] remember last year Lia Griffith shared a breathtaking copper leaf wreath, and I knew I had to try out her technique! So I decided […]
How many sheets do you need for one wreath?
We used 1 roll of 12×30 to cover the wreath form– I just updated the link to what we used (https://www.amazon.com/Metal-Roll-12X30-Thin-Copper/dp/B0006N6PYG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1516993215&sr=8-1&keywords=copper+metal+sheets+craft+40+gauge)
Thanks for sharing!
