Embossing paste has always been a little scary to me. I didn’t understand it and I certainly didn’t know what the heck I could do with it in a DIY project. I felt pretty strongly that I would never need to use embossing paste, until I got some very wise words from a fellow crafter: Embossing paste is basically cake frosting for craft projects. Well, hot damn! Why didn’t you say that in the first place!?I am ALWAYS on board for cake frosting so here I am, tackling my fear of embossing paste with this simple DIY.
