Re: How to Turn a Soda Can into a Spring Flower Brooch

I liked eveh's idea but I don't crochet. I just did a test with poking holes and doing a whip stitch over the edge with different fibers and the heavier ones worked best, crochet cotton, heavy yarn, waxed linen cord. Also tried with strung seed beads on wire which worked pretty well too. So with my idea for covering the edges with stained glass foiling tape and theses new ideas spured on by eveh, I think we can all give it a try and feel safe!

Re: How to Turn a Soda Can into a Spring Flower Brooch

Hi all.
I tried this but used stained glass copper tape on the edges and burnished them down. It comes in several widths and finishes. Also there a not enugh attractive cans around here so I use any can and then use model paint for metal items to paint on my pieces. This opens up for lots of possibilities including different patinas on the foil tape.

Enjoy the possibilities! Marie

Re: Another Key fob!

These are too cute. I make wristlet bags and those findings would be great for me to use. Will you share where you get them?
