Re-cycling Crafts-Beer/Soda Can Bracelets
I feel kinda awkward but the only cans I found in our recycling were cider/beer cans.
But the colours are pretty for a bracelet.
Pop cans might be more sturdy, not too sure, but these worked quite well anyways.
I cut the top and bottom off and split it up the centre to start.
I easily bent the edges over with my finger tips then crimped down with pliers for a tight edge.
The tin is very pliable, forgiving and easy to work with.
Crimp one more time for crisp edging.
Mine is not sharp in any way.
This might be a difficult craft for kids to do unattended.
