Soda Can Snowflake Ornament

My friend Chris made this beautiful snowflake ornament from me -- using two soda cans and the Snowflake #2 Die (#113460, $15.95) with her Big Shot!

Chris said the hardest part was rinsing and cutting all the cans. (She used her Craft & Rubber Scissors, #103179, $19.95 to cut the cans open.) Turns out this can be a dangerous (read: sharp!) procedure, but once you die-cut the can, the edges are smooth.

Chris layered two snowflakes for this ornament. Here are some more die cut soda can snowflakes she gave me.

Can you guess which brands they are? I love how colorful they are. And if you like plain silver, you can use the other side of the can.

This is SOOO pretty! I should totally try this! (God knows I drink enough pop...) It's funny because I actually just bought some magnets and ornaments on ebay made from cans too! Check it out:

Ooh, great project! I have a few ornaments that I need to give as presents this year, so these will be perfect.

these are beautiful !!! I love how the edges aren't sharp once they are die cut. Will have to try this.

Well what a cute idea. Don't have the snowflake punch or die but very cute. Wish I had thought of it.
