Soda Can Butterfly Pin
Here are some genius Sizzix ideas from Eileen Hull to use with an old soda can. You've got to love soda can crafts because they're both thrifty and eco-friendly!
**Note: If you have bought this Butterfly die and it looks different than the one used in the video- you got one of the limited editions! There are two versions of this design but both work great to make the same project. New video coming soon to show the how-to. Thanks for your interest in my Sizzix dies!**
