I don't know...I've seen that one made out of paper. Could have just traced a pattern on the inside and cut out with tin snips.

Do you know where I can find the paper pattern? This doesnt appear to be simple strips. Thanks!

Here is a similar one:

*** Christmas balls, esprit cabane, holiday decorating ideas

This one's made using strips, but you could change the shape to match the one you showed. It says you can cut the soda tin with scissors.

I think you just need a petal shape - try something like this pattern (designed for a felt ball but it's what I could find on a quick search). I'd cut out with scrap paper first to make sure it's what you want and check the sizing etc.

Soda cans cut really easily with kitchen scissors. The edges can be kind of sharp though so do take care with handling the pieces.

HTH!

Joanne, that pattern looks perfect. You are sure good at finding stuff! Will you be head of my research team?

Sure, as long as it's researching cool crafty stuff

There are actually some really interesting ideas out there if you google soda can ornaments including one using the pull tabs to cover a ball - looks great! Scroll down this blog post to see it. I remember making things like this angel from cardstock many, many years ago (the smaller version where the wings are cut as an integral part of the pattern).

Thanks everyone. I tried to make one with the petal shape, but it just doesn't come out as pictured....

Did a search and came up empty. would love to know how to do this, too, s I make ornaments every year for each person in the family. This would be a really different one. Really like the one I found with pop tops, too.

Any of your dies will cut out the soda cans. So you can use your poinsettias - use the colored side and layer them and punch and add a brad for a flat ornament. Make two and wire back to back for a 3-d ornament. There are so many possibilities. At our senior center we've taken the empty soda cans and turned them into out door whirligigs to hang up - that then spin in the wind. I've made magnets of Tim Holtz flower dies and they turn out really cute. Just go to it - have sharp tools - and have fun.

Try a Pinterest search with soda can art, tin can art, diy soda can ornaments, etc.

Hope this helps.

Just treat the soda can as if it's cardstock - nothing special required (other than cutting the can open to start off with - cut off the top and the bottom and then slit up the side so you can flatten out the piece).
