I try not to post everyday, but, I did want to share this project, because, it’s related to yesterday’s metal stamping post.
coke can roses
I attached them to my clipboard banner in my scrap room. this pin is what inspired my project. I love these clipboards, but, I needed 7 white roses to do my “vintage” banner. and, since, I already had the supplies, my roses were free:)
here’s the finished banner with the roses.
to make them, after cutting up the coke can, I ran them through my die cutter with a spiral rose die. this is what the die cuts look like.
then, just roll them up, starting on the outside rolling inward, and hot glue the bottoms in place. I used needle nose pliers to bend the petals a bit, and spray painted them white on both sides.
I should mention, too, my interest in the metal projects first came from aimee at twigg studios. awhile back she posted a tutorial and I pinned it. she hand cut and hand punched her cute tags made from coke cans. if you haven’t been to her site, please go check out her awesome projects:)
