Cuttlebug and Coffee 2!

An early morning start gave me a bonus with my coffee...in fact I embossed the lid before my first cup a' joe. So....I go to make coffee, and oh oh, the coffee container is empty....I go to open the can and it has this metal seal...and I see "ornament"....and it is perfect! Embosses beautiful, and fits the card front. I did dab on a little blue alcohol ink to dress it up, and used a Spellbinders die under it. So, if you want to make some easy cards, some ornaments for the tree, or dress up your favorite outside evergreen, drink more coffee and save those metal liners! Great kids craft too.

Thanks for stopping in.....hugs, Gerrie

Awesome way to recycle - good thing I have a can of coffee to open in the AM - I just may have to "borrow" your idea! Thanks for sharing!

Oh my goodness, what a fabulous idea. I must drink the wrong kind of coffee, I can't remember seeing that great lid!

WOW, all that thinking before caffeine! I'm impressed! Since I don't drink coffee could you come up with something using a diet pepsi 2ltr bottle?? LOL
LOVE your card & creativity & you!

I have been saving those liners for over a year and was thinking of adhering them to cereal box cardboard and putting thru a die-cut machine. Do you have a better idea for using these or tips I might not have thought of?
Thanks
