Do you ever have an idea to make something, search all the craft stores high and low for the one thing you need only to find it's not out there? Sure you can order online but who wants to wait?
Ok so I may be a little impatient, but I am even more excited that I made it myself!
These sweet little birdies are made from a coke can!
Now you can buy craft tin, but $4.00 for in little sheet is kinda crazy!
What you need:
an empty pop can
fiskars fuse bird die
First carefully cut the top off of a pop can, cut a slit down the side and cut off the bottom. This is sharp, if you have protective gloves wear them!
Clean it up, wipe dry.
Now for the fun part. Use your bird die
the plastic shim on the bottom, then place your die, tin, and enough cardboard or soft foam to get it through the machine firmly enough that it will emboss the tin. I used about 5. It depends on the thickness if the cardboard.
Roll it through and that's it! You will have the cites little tin birdie!
Now get out your chalk paint! I have been using Americana chalk paint.
