Pinterest has solidified in me the notion that people out there are extraordinarily talented. If you're like me, you can queue things up on your boards that one day you need to do until you realize there just isn't enough time in the world for it all. So, I've been trying to focus on starting and completing projects all the way (which is much harder for me than it sounds).
Therefore, when I find really awesome, quick craft projects I can do entirely, I jump at the chance. This particular project--Soda Can Embossing--is ridiculously easy! You just need an empty aluminum soda can, a ballpoint pen, sandpaper / sanding block, and cardboard. Soda cans are perfect for embossing because the aluminum is so thin, it holds a nice shape, and you don't have to buy extra materials.
One thing I love about the idea of embossing soda cans is how versatile this craft is. You could use them for Christmas ornaments, gift tags, bookmarks, notes, scrapbooking embellishments, etc.
Depending on how intricate your design is, this project can be done in under an hour. I love that. I'm planning on getting my whole family in on the idea of making some fun ornaments this year by embossing soda cans.
