Soda Can Flowers

Another soda can favorite. . . making flowers.  These were all cut on my cuttlebug machine.  The smallest flower is a Provocraft die and the rest are Sissix.  The most interesting part of these I think, are the centers.  There are brads, screws nuts and bolts, and Christmas ornament toppers in the middle.  The little flower can be unscrewed from the flourish and placed on a card, tag or ??? The screw is camouflaged with silver stickles.  I also like the use of the tiny purple brad in the lower flower which is shaped like a tiny flower. These miniscule brads were purchased at Michael's and come in a variety of colors.  I like to color these with alcohol inks, and will be experimenting with gold leaf. The also look pretty just in their natural aluminum state.
