Even back then I was a packrat, saving all the colorful bottle caps! I just couldn't throw them out, so I would make up games using them. I don't know what ever happened to my huge bag of bottle caps, but once I had my own children, that old urge of collecting began to take over again. I had a hard time throwing out all those colorful soda cans and once again begain saving them! I knew someday I would find something to do with them! As my little bag of cans grew to an over flowing garbage can, my husband began asking me to do something with them or he would!
All the cans I use are recycled. They are washed and the edges are sanded so there are no sharp edges. Sometimes they may have little surface imperfections since they are recycled but I think this just adds a bit more history and charm to the pieces!
