I don't know why, but I've been saving soda cans for ages. I've already made some bracelets, but I don't have any other ideas. Suggestions?

if you  have a lot, you could always return them for $$ to spend on other crafts  Grin
the bracelets are cool, and I've been thinking of using popcans to make dangly earrings but haven't yet...they also might make cute flower pins - you could do multi layered ones ...
okay, I don't have any other ideas

I was shopping at Marshall Fields in Chicago last weekend and saw purses and a hat made from coca cola cans.  They lined them with vinyl and were held together with plastic lacing.
Can't remember the name of the people that were making them but found a close copy at http://www.southeastasianart.com/CanArt.html

I don't know about the can part but you can take all the tabs off and make a pop tab bracelet.

There's a thread somewhere on craftster about making lanterns out of soda or beer cans.  I made some this summer for an outdoor party and they're very cute.

You could cut and nail them to wood like this really cool but very expensive mirror.
