Upcycle - Flower made from Arizona Green tea can

I finally stopped drinking soda!! Yeah to me!! :) So lately I have being drinking iced tea. I LOVE the Arizona Pomegranate Green tea mix but once in a while I drink the iced tea in a can. You know why? 
Because I just love the can colors and design! LOL! I also like the taste!
I made this cool metal flower using the same process as my Metal Flowers, you can see the tutorial HERE.
This is so trendy and it has so many possibilities to use as an accessory! I just glued a hair clip to the back of the flower and attached to a piece a ribbon and voila! 
It can be used as an embellishment for a tote bag, hairband, belt, napkin holder and so much more! 
Just use your imagination! Have fun!
