What did you do to keep from cutting your fingers? Anything special? I would love to do this a pair of old heels and some grape soda cans to decorate my hallway, but am really scared of cutting myself. I had that problem when I tried to make bangle bracelets with old rootbeer cans a few years ago and have avoided working with pop cans since. Great job!

Wow! These are so cool! What a great project. I think people would be these as an artwork. To make them more wearable, maybe you could put some foil-like fabric on the toes. I would love to see these done with labels from Campbell's Soup cans. Very kitsch!

well... i didn't use anything to protect my hands  Huh i'm pretty used to dealing with sharp objects from my art class, and i would just never touch the edges. i think it helps to use an exacto knife to cut the top and bottom off, and then use a pair of scissors to cut the rough edges. i would definetly try to pattern how you're going to cover your heels so that you can just cut the pieces of can, good luck with your project! hope this helps
