*Edited to Add - Now with Tutorial - page 3*

I made LOADS of dog tags out of beer and soda cans.

I gave a necklace to my daughter and made a keyring.  But I've been looking at them and they could be strung together to make bracelets or belts, beaded and made into earrings, sewn onto clothes or bags, used with card making or scrapbooks - the list is endless really!

Anyway please see what you think of them.

The necklace:

The Keyring:



The Other charms that I haven't used yet:



And a close up again:




I'm thinking of doing some different charms now like, hearts, stars, cherries, well you know everything I can think of untill I exhaust the cans!  Roll Eyes

I second the tute! Those are so neat!

Do they sometimes smell like soda/beer? And are there any scratchy edges?

I would also love some more information if available. Or a pic of the backs would also be great! I have made a few things out of cans, but the edges are still difficult to look nice and finished. Any tips would be wonderful!

They look really great though!
