How to Make a Layered Soda Can Flower Embellishment

For those of you still dealing with temps in the 20's and 30's, I apologize in advance for the next several posts.  We've had two nice weekends in row here in the South (nice enough to paint even!) and I've been gardening!  Yes, gardening.  I'll have a few posts over the next couple of weeks to show you what I've been working on.  For now, how about if we get started with some indoor projects that will make it feel like Spring is here!

I've been making and selling little aluminum embellishments in my Etsy shop for a couple of years now and I just love them.  My customers have come up with some really great ways to use these pieces in their own projects, too.  One of them used these butterflies to make napkin rings and I've used them to make both Christmas tree ornaments and have even added a metal stake to use as garden decoration.

And these adorable tiny flowers were made from the UPC symbol section of soda cans.  One of my customers incorporated them into her jewelry creations.

Today I'm going to show you how to make your own layered soda can flower embellishments.  I've used these flowers as embellishments for gifts but I think they'd be great on handmade cards, too.  And many of my customers have used these as Christmas tree ornaments as well.  Be sure to check out the video tutorial, then tell me how you'll use them!
