Copper Pins made with Big Shot and Punches

Linda Owens gave me the idea to make some flower pins using pop cans. I had some copper sheets from a couple of years ago (from a local craft store) and ran them through the Big Shot and used a few punches. On the center pin,  I used a pop can and the copper sheets.When the pins were completed, I added half pearls from the Pretties Kit, and pin backs that you can buy at any craft store. I used Crystal Effects to put the pins together and to adhere the pin backs.

These pins are so much fun to make. Pop cans make great pins too. It's amazing that the edges are smooth. Just one more wonderful way we can use Stampin' Up! punches, the Big Shot and dies!
Happy Stamping!
