A while back I found some really nice barrettes that where made by cutting them out of decorative tins.  I bought one that I wear often and get wonderful comments about.  I have also been looking for and buying tins to recycle.

I got one cut out and glued on a barrette back today.  I like how it looks.

I will be making templates to use to make the cutting easier.  I hope that the rest of them turn out as nice.  I am sure that I will be visiting the thrift stores and antique malls to find tins to recycle.
