from trashy to flashy, these drinks cans really know how to shine!
I started messing around with an old cream soda can and made some heart shapes on the bottom using a safety pin. I decided to go round the title and stick a light in it - as you do - and it turned out pretty well. I then stole my sisters half-empty can of Coke (obviously I had to empty it *wink wink*) and did the same with the "Coca-Cola" title because it was all swirly and I loved the finished product of this one. Post your versions. Love you All!!! xx :)

I love it! If you use battery powered lights you could hang these from your ceiling. :] Thanks!
