Fabulous Friday Recycled Find


Good Friday morning! Things are starting to mellow out a bit. BF is doing fine, he's already complaining that he's bored. Looks like he'll get to come home on Saturday. Yay!

So, on to this week's recycled find! Last week I put out a call on the Etsy forums for recycled items and had a great response, so I chose from this forum thread again for this week's feature:
Recycled Diet Pepsi soda can earrings by KimTetmeyerJewelry



Here are a pair of earrings that were created using a Diet Pepsi soda can. These are so cool and free shipping, too! Here is what Kim wrote in her listing:

Those are very cute earrings!

I didn't know you could punch soda cans. They look just like my most favorite scrapbooking punch. (I have heard though that you should punch through aluminum foil to sharpen your scrapbooking punches.)
