Pop Can Bracelet, Necklace or Earrings
Empty Pop Can
Pair of Kitchen Scissor
Fine metal thread or Invisible thread or a Fishing Line
Findings to close the bracelet
Drink the contents of the can and wash it out. To start cutting the can, taking great care, stab one of the blades into the top of the can and cut around the can lid.Then cut down the can and cut around the base, you now have a rectangle to work with.
Place the metal in the punch and punch out your shapes... the metal is actually thinner than some of the heavier papers used in card making and will cut quite easily.
Using your emery board, run it around the edges to smooth off any sharp or jagged edges.
Lay out your shapes and using the map pin, punch through to make a hole on each side of the shape, use the emery board again to smooth off the excess.
Decide the order that the shapes will sit in your bracelet, then lace through with the thread of your choice making sure that longer piece of thread sits behind the bracelet... remember to leave a long tail before you start so you can weave it into your closing findings.
And ta daaaaaaaaa... there it is, your incredibly green and recycled bracelet.
