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)
