When Dee contacted me to share with her CSI readers an Accessory Refashion project, I was thrilled! I love to up cycle things! One of my all time favorite project from my blog, Crissy’s Crafts, is turning a soda can into metal flowers! 
So, here is the tutorial to create beautiful metal flower using craft punch!
These flowers can be used to embellish a bracelet, necklace, headband, brooch or a hair clip. You can spray paint them or leave as it is! Simple, easy and a great up cycle project!
      Materials:
  2 soda cans
spray paint for metals (optional)
flower craft punches in different sizes
multipurpose adhesive or hot glue
 small piece of felt , scrapbook brad and jewels to embellish 
     metal cutting snips  and sharp scissors
        hammer, nail and cutting board

 

 Instructions:
Rinse the soda cans. Using the metal cutting snips or sharp scissors, cut away the top and bottom of the can, leaving a flat sheet of aluminum. 
 Once you have your sheet of aluminum, punch the flowers using the craft punches. 

 

 Using your hammer and nail, make a small hole in the center of each flower.
 bend up  and down the sides of your petals

 

 Stack all 4 flowers layers and secure them with a scrapbook brad and glue a jewel of your choice to the center of each flower
 You can leave the flowers just like that or you can spray paint them.
 If you choose to spray paint them, this is how it will look like.
 To assemble your headband you will need a glue gun or a very strong glue like E-600
I used a glue gun and worked just fine.
 Glue a small round piece of felt to the inside of your headband where the flower are.
You can also glue the flower to a hair clip!
And here is my baby Bella model! ;)
Thank you Dee for having me!!
Hope to be back soon!
