How to Make Your own Folded Soda Can Pen

(1/3) > >>

Erica McPhee:
I taught this workshop for our guild last year. Everyone was really happy with how the pens turned out. I didn't use soda cans though as the aluminum has become so flimsy. Instead, I used aluminum flashing which you can find at Lowes or Home Depot.

I'm including some pictures and the PDF handout below. Let me know if you have any questions.

Wow, very interesting! I never would've thought of something like that.

Erica McPhee:
They really work quite well. And they are great to use with Carrie Imai's "Dancin' Pen book and DVD."

What do you cut the aluminium with?
