Tin cans

Swedish tin cans are rather boring. Not like anything you can buy in Asia or America.- color wise I mean. Swedish tin cans have nice paper labels but once the label has come off they all look the same – grey metallic. That’s one of the reasons why I like to work with soda cans. They come in all kind of colors and patterns but not only that, they are so soft that you can cut in them with a pair of ordinary scissors. Another good thing with soda cans is that you don’t get those awful sharp edges. Working with ordinary tin cans sometime makes you think you are making Brazilian throwing stars…..

I like flowers and I like soda cans so today I made a flower wreath out of soda cans.

Why don`t you try it too? It`s fun!

Take care
