Ohh. I like it! Did you fold the edges down, or otherwise do something to keep them from being sharp? I'd hate to slice my hand open every time I moved the frame.

Could you take a picture of the back? How do you put the picture in, and how does it stand up?

ok, i was expecting this to look like a recycled pop can, but you have really reincarnated that thing. clever design!

for a wall-mounted version, you could use the pop tab as a hanger!

Yeah, you just draw on the reverse with a ballpoint pen.

I made an artwork with softdrink cans all cut up. It didn't turn out quite how i envisioned, but the cans weren't as sharp as I thought. You can just score them with a crappy old xacto knife and they kinda 'snap' down the line too.

I wondered how sharp it would be  Huh

I think it would also look nice with the printed side showing too.

Or drilled with charms on it!  Oh God I'm on a roll LOL.

Can you make it different colours by burning it or something???
