Recycle/reuse your aluminum cans.
Using a medium size kitchen knife, cut s slit down the height of the can. Next, cut off the bottom just above the bottom cupping, where it is still flat. Lastly, cut off the topof the can at the top of the flat area. Run through the Big Shot machine one layer at a time. If you have the maximum area of the flat side of the can, you can fit 2 snowflakes per can.
Pictured are snowflakes laid so you can view the back and front sides.
They are a great idea for a small and mailable gift to tuck in with your Christmas cards. They also store compactly. All 40 removed from our Christmas tree stored in 2 long envelopes, I used paper dividers so they don't tangle with each other in storage.
