    Hoping you can help. I have been making the tealight candle holders using aluminum flashing from the local hardward store and have had alot of fun making these. I have received several requests to use copper. Where is the best pricing on copper metal sheets 38 gauge? Thank you for your help ... Lola

    I'd google "38 gauge copper sheets" and go from there.

    Oh..my...gosh! What a great idea! I'm sorry, I'm so behind the "times", but I hadn't even considered using this die this way. Thank you ladies, you have just contributed to my November special projects class!

    LOL I'm not very good at posting but I will give it a try. I am having tons of fun with this die. I have used candles, glass gems, sea shells, potpourri (sp???), and scented candle chips as my fillers. You can keep your metal simple or emboss it before assembling or attach a butterfly or bird to one of the petals, or ink the edges of the petals. I'm excited and will be using other metals including copper. Thank you everyone for your help and encouragement. I am very grateful ... Lola
