A fun way to recycle

Who said the only way to recycle was through your recycling bin?  This is a super fun card made using my Big Shot, the new Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, and an aluminum can!  That's right, the shiny silver textured piece of this card is a soda can!

One of the reasons I love my Big Shot is because of the variety of materials you can put through it.  I love the fun of using a soda can as part of a fun embellishment on a card.

To make your own soda can embellishment, use some tin snips or old scissors to cut your soda can apart and into the shape you want it (you could use a Big Shot die for this part!)  Put the soda can piece into an embossing folder and run it through as you would any piece of paper.  Voila!  You have a recycled embellishment!

**Tip: You'll probably want to use Sticky Strip to adhere your soda can embellishment to your card!

Did you hear I'm giving away a FREE Big Shot??  Check it out!
