For these really cute ornaments I took 2 empty aluminum soda cans and cut the ends off of them then down the side to make it flat. I ran these through my Big Shot (113439) with the Snowflake #2 (113460) original die. I ran one side through with the printed side up and the other with the printed side down. The die rounds the edges slightly so they are not sharp as you would expect them to be.
This one is from a Diet 7 Up cans, I layered a print side onto a plain aluminum side and stuck them together with a mini glue dot (103683), in the center. On the top in the center I placed a large Basic Jewel Rhinestones (119246).
From 2 Dr Pepper cans......because these are all layered with the 2 different sides they are basically the same on both sides.
From 2 store brand Soda Water cans
From 2 Pepsi Cans...... I used Whisper White Bakers Twine (124262) to create hangers for the tree.
They were big hits with everyone as I attached them to cards and packages at Christmas.
They are easy to make if you have the die and take very little time.
I work with seniors in a group of three Special Care Homes, as the nurse manager. I have worked with seniors for the last 16 or so years in the community and assisted living residences.
I have been married to my best friend, Lonnie, for 32+ years, and together we have two adult sons, Sean and Jeremy and a grand daughter, Mia, who keeps us all on our toes even though she lives in Montreal.
I have always loved creating with my hands especially with needle and thread and more recently with papercrafts. I love the diversity of it all.
I signed up as a hobby demo with Stampin' Up in February/March of 2009 during Salebration. I really love the quality of the products.
