Craftin Memories with Cheryl

I joined Nomades on my wedding anniversary. My husband was looking at military jewelry so I went searching for something with special meaning and found this wonderful company! I saw so many charms to build the story of the military journey my family has been on for 30 yrs that becoming a Consultant was a simple step. I love that the silver charms represent memories and stories to those who choose them. I continue my journey with Stampin' Up! as well - a Demonstrator since 2001 ... my stamps allow me to express my creative side. Stampin has also brought new and special friendships to my life and makes moving and meeting new friends so much easier.

Recycled can flowers

I've seen people making these into pins but I am always so careful not to make things I think might be sharp into a wearable item so I was looking for another way to use these as gifts. I found these really tiny pots in my craft stash and have a least a hundred paper sticks (you know the ones for making candy suckers) .... so here is what I came up with. Using a variety of punches, some old scissors, an embossing folder (which seems to make metal more soft)
