Edit: Oh my! This was on the "Wear It This Weekend" recommendations of Craftster! What an honor that is. 

I made brooches out of soda cans and game cards. Each one is 3x3cm.

How to make it:

Notice that cut sheet metal is sharp. As mentioned cut soda cans are major weapons of the Ninja. You should be careful. This DIY project was conducted by professional stunt men in closed roads.

1. Empty a soda pop can. Drinking is a good possibility to do so.

2. With scissors you can cut a rectangle (in my case 4 x 6,5cm).

3. Mark the foldings and cutting lines (that one you have to work out by yourself Wink ).

4. Cut away what is not needed.

5. Fold.

6. Cut out a part of a game card (you cannot use the card game after that operation Cool).

7. Put card piece into frame and put a security pin in it.

8. Fold the whole thing together.

9. Secure edges with clear cello tape.

10. Cut off the rest of cello tape.

Listo!

Dear TimelessBarbara,

indeed it is a stupid thing to cut the cans. Actually Ninjas use cut soda cans as weapons. I was only lucky not to cut myself. Honestly you should take care and be very careful when handling the cut aluminum. I secured the edges with clear tape after bending.

Love from Barcelona,

Cocinero

Dear Burnt Muffin,

I updated the post and added a picture of the pin on the back.

Greetings,

Dear Mi-mi-mia,

Yours truly,

Cocinero, they are wonderful!

I am wondering if it would help you be safer from cuts if you wear wear cotton work/gardening gloves while cutting them, and until the sharp parts are taped. Something like these:

 I'd love to learn how to make them, if you make a tutorial later on.

 Thank you for sharing them! Cool
