UPDATE: Originally posted on April Fools, 2021 under Fashion & Wearables, but these are not actually wearable; a little sharp and very flimsy.
There are definitely those in my circle who are NAILING this quarantine thing! It’s been hard. They’ve faced challenge after challenge and risen above! They deserve an prestigious award that everyone can see… when they someday leave their homes.
They’re a little sharp, but hey we’re all grownups and allowed to do things like drive cars and cut avocados with knives. I made 6 - all from various beverage cans and tops accumulated from Quarantine activities such as staying hydrated, occasional treats, and day-drinking.
I got an award Ribbon Bigz die set for my Sizzix to cut the aluminum and also used various embossing folders on the cut pieces.
I recently got a big long-reach hole punch/eyelet setter from We R Memory Makers to punch holes and then used my brad stash to attach most of the pieces. I dug up old metal punch sets I have had for years and years to make the “3st” place marks and then filled them in with an ultra fine sharpie.
Two-thirds also have smashed bottle tops.
Instead of a pin back, they have a magnet to keep from poking holes in winners’ outfits. Then a super strong magent to go inside clothes (not pictured).
