Flower Folds Candle Holder


Did you know you can cut cans with the Big Shot die cutting machine? These adorable candle holders were made by cutting the top and bottom from a soda or beer can and then slitting down the side until you have a flat sheet of very thin aluminum -- just  be careful not to cut yourself. Any of the dies with "BIGZ" in their name -- and also the Originals dies -- will cut through the aluminum. (The trick is the die has to be a steel rule die -- so the thicker dies.) Once you cut the metal -- in this case with the Flower Folds die that I've been showcasing lately -- then the edges are sort of rounded and not dangerous.


I got his great idea from Melissa and Gayla's fun blog post that you can see here. Very clever girls! These would be great to make a ton and decorate a patio.
