Metal Flowers Picture Tutorial

I am just in love with my metal flowers!! 
Love making them in all different sizes and shapes.
 Getting better at each time! 
So many ways you can use them.
Hope the picture tutorial will help you make some pretty ones too!
Enjoy!










Using a scrapbook brad, secure your flowers together.










After this project, I end up with a lot of soda can bottoms. 
Found a way to use some of them by making this upcycle project!! 


I also made this beautiful flower using Arizona Green Tea cans!

  23. How is it that you are fixing them together? it looks like they have a bead or button in the middle, but no clues in the tools list.

  24. Wow. I love this idea! I am going to try some of these. The only thing that worries me is I have a lot of grandkids and I know the edges on these are sharp. They would have to be kept up high. Beautiful idea!

  25. I absolutely LOVE this!!! I left my coke can unpainted so the red and coca-cola logo was on top... Thanks for the awesome idea!!!

  28. I was so thankful I found this site! A stranger I didn't know gave me a cream soda and I wanted to pay him back in a unique way so I created a flower from the same pop can he gave me. This is such a great idea!!

  29. These are so neat! I'm going to try it for sure. Thanks!

  30. The flowers are GORGEOUS, but I have a concern: are the edges of the flowers sharp at all? If so, is there a way to treat them to deal with that potential issue?

  32. Que delícia achar o blog de uma brasileira mostrando como se faz artesanato no Brasil. Amei suas rosas!! Ficaram realmente super lindas!!!
    Tenho visto essas rosas nas feiras, a maneira de fazer pode ser a mesma, mas o jetiinho e o talento é único!!
    Bjs e um ótimo restinho de semana e um final de semana melhor ainda!!!

  35. Really pretty.
    I was wondering how you keep the edges from being so sharp.
    What do you use to sand them?

  36. I'm just now finding this. Thank you so much for posting. I found a pretty Arizona tea can in the middle of the road and hopped out and picked it up! Already made a rose out of it and bought some more metal to work with. Thanks again! -Beth S. In Texas
