Gorgeous!! I want them!! I can only imagine how much time and care (not to cut yourself) it must have taken to cut those pieces from drink cans! Great reuse for them, though  Grin I will definitely have to remember that. They all fit together so nicely, I can't tell if you grouted them or not?

I'm still amazed that these were made out of cans?! They have a really cool industrial look to them. How many little cuts did you get on your fingers when you were putting them together Smiley? Crafty battle scars!

Congratulations on being featured in the best of list for 2014!!

Oh my goodness! I just saw that this project was featured! Yay!

I surprisingly never cut myself doing this. Poked myself on pointy bits a few times but not enough to draw blood.

Someone asked about my method. I actually just printed the logos and cut out bits of paper to ensure that the important parts would fit in the design, then traced the paper shapes onto the 'wrong' side of the can with a pencil. It left an imprint of where I should cut. I painted in the 'grout' as went so that none would get on the metal and it also hid the printout Tongue

Thanks for the encouraging feedback everyone!
