There are so many possibilities with these wonderful metal stampings. The entire piece measures about 2-1/8 by 2-1/2 inches - the image measures 7/8 by 1-1/8 inch. The stamping can be trimmed with scissors (if you don't care about the scissors too much), but metal cutters might be a better choice. Or, use the entire piece. They are also fantastic for your collages and assemblages - to glue on or inlay. We think these to be made of tin, but they just might be aluminum.
