Aluminum Can Bracelets

Lately I have been doing a lot with aluminum cans. (a material I can afford;) It is great to work with once you get the hang of it. I have been working with it since last October and I haven't cut myself yet. (Knock on wood)
We have been saving pull tabs for a while now and I have lots to work with.
The above bracelet I cut out the designs from my box of can scraps. I hot glued two together so it is not sharp, then I punched a hole in the top with my crop-a-dile. (my favorite tool) Added a jump ring, then added it to the bracelet.
Jazmyn my daughter cant wait to wear these to school. So, I guess I need to make more to sell in my booth. I will just make her help me;)
These are very lightweight to wear also. I hope you have enjoyed them.
