Arizona Tea Can Bracelet

What to do with all those cans!



Instructions

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

    First, cut the top and bottom off your can and flatten it out like so. I used regular scissors but imagine that metal cutters would be easier.
    You also probably want to clean the can too.

    Next cut that piece in two and fold the edges down using the pliers about 1 or 2 inches like this photo.

    Last of all, you can place some clear packing tape on the inside for added comfort. Be sure to make two holes n either end to add either a snap closure or a ribbon like I did.

Oo seems a tad dangerous. Maybe it isn't but it still makes me feel nervous...

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
