Soda Cans: Before and After Part 4

Today is day 4 of the Before & After Series. This series is running March 8- March 13. The purpose of this series is to show some common items that we all use, and then show them in a different way. This is not your standard "altered items" series of projects. Some of the posts are techniques, and some of them are full projects. My FAVORITE project will actually post on Saturday March 13th, and it will make you "jump on a chair and scream!" Check back tomorrow for a project that is a hint to the big project for Saturday.

Today we will look at a soda can. I used the metal from a soda can to create the metal accent on this Anniversary card and this Valentine's card.

I have made a video to show you how to do this technique. I hope you enjoy it.

I am thinking of some ideas to do a new series on metal! It will have to wait a week though. Next week I will be posting about my daughter's Stamp Camp with her friends! That is what she wanted to do for a birthday party, so we are doing several projects together! We are both very excited! I will show all the projects and photos next week.

I post every day. Every day. So come by and check out what is happening, or better yet, subscribe in the top right panel and receive email updates when I post! To view videos, you will have to visit my blog or YouTube.

Thanks for stopping by today!
