  1. Follow manufacturer's directions to create 3 square metal designs. Cut out with scissors; set aside.
  2. Cut out 6 green squares the same size (2 each of 3 shades). Burn pattern on each, using the Versa-Tool on the sheet of glass.
  3. Assemble squares in pattern. Create a 5"x5-1/2" red cardstock top-fold card. Attach paper squares with gluestick and the metal squares with Creative Metals tape.
  4. Print small tag with greeting, ink the edges and attach to center block. Attach small green flower and rhinestone.


  1. Cut a wreath shape from gold metal; emboss a design.
  2. Tape it to a silver square. Using the Versa-Tool soldering tool, add solder dots to the wreath. Because solder dots tend to fall off secure each one with an adhesive dot, cut in half.
  3. Create card from double-sided cardstock. Cut opening in the front smaller than the silver square. Attach behind the opening with adhesive dots. Attach a bow to the wreath and PEACE to the front. Write message inside.


  1. Following manufacturer's directions use a copper metal square to create lattice frame for monogram. Emboss center square. Lay the copper over the lattice template and tool an area 7/8" all around.
  2. Fold under copper edges or cut along the edge. Mount on green cardstock, cut slightly larger than the copper square. Mount on a card of patterned green cardstock.
  3. Cut small slit at fold of card, slip in a narrow green ribbon, tie a knot; trim ends.
  4. Cut a square of brown cardstock the size of the inner, untooled square. Round the corners. Attach to the copper with tape and apply monogram stickers.
