Recycled aluminum pop cans - last year's Midsummer project. Just wanted to share that the little "punched tin" sun mobile I made using aluminum can bottoms look as bright and beautiful as the they did the first day I hung them in the garden!

Good for using aluminum pop cans for craft material. Bad for land fills! Reuse or recycle please!

Did I send you a link to Christmas ornaments made out of aluminum cans? I think I saved the link, but I probably didn't send it. I'll try to find it.

That was a very helpful paragraph, wasn't it?

Thanks for sharing that clever photo/painting idea, too! It's funny - how long ago we'd cringe if our photos got wet and now the paper seems to be impervious, now that we want it to run a little.
