Soda can Background with Packing Peanut flower

This is a card that I made for Creatively-Green with a soda can and a packing peanut flower.
The soda can was cut up and embossed with the cuttlebug folder then colored with Generation Colorant. For future use I would add the colorant to the Generation Green paint because the colorant does come off on your hands when dry.

The packing peanuts are flatten on one side to make individual petals.

I really should have taken more time to punch more holes closer together so that the stitching looked a bit better.

Once again, I hope I have inspired you to look at things around you and use them in your crafts.
