Happy Friday everyone! Maker Faire is almost here, it will be this Sunday May 5 at Palmer Event Center from 10am to 6pm. We are excited to be a part of it, and so we’re giving you another sneak peek at what we’ll have on display there! Today’s post highlights our latest efforts in making jewelry out of aluminum cans.

Here’s an example of two barettes that we made using scrapbook punches and hot glue.

These are bracelets using the same scrapbook punches. To connect the flowers together, we nailed holes in them and put in jump rings between each flower.

It’s fun to hunt for brightly colored soda cans to use, but be sure not to overindulge on sugary drinks in your creative efforts! We mostly used sparkling water and juice cans.

Hope to see you this Sunday at Maker Faire!
