  • How to make a can cuff. Arizona Tea Can Bracelet - Step 1

Thats what I was thinking of! I almost bought this watch (this was before my crafting phase) from my city's art gallery, that a local artist made, with a Andy Warhol pic. 90$ CDN! And now that I think of it, it looked like one out of a cereal box! Tongue
