Die Cut Machine Soda Can Flowers

bloggerPlus
I started cutting soda cans with my Epic 6 Die Cutting machine before Christmas, but finally found the time to write a blog about it! Using the dies gives a more distinct look and greater size options than the hand punches. For today’s tutorial, I am using a daisy style flower shaped dies from Lifestyle Crafts.
Supplies:

Die Cutting Machine (I use a Epic 6)
Cutting Mat
Flower Die Set
Soda Can
Scissors

Step 1: Cut the top and bottom off of your can with the scissors cutting one the side of the can to leave one large rectangle.
Step 2: Arrange the dies you want to cut out on the cutting mat, make sure the arrangement is no larger than your can. I also added a thin piece of cardboard to my cutting matt to help it cut all the way through the can.
Step 3: Place soda can rectangle over top of the dies and then place the top of the cutting mat on top hold it together to make sure the dies don’t slide!
Step 4: Send it through your die cutting machine! You may want to send it through twice especially if your dies have foam on them like mine.
Step 5: If necessary, carefully pop out flowers from soda can.
Tada! You should now have the layers for your flower. Glue them together to create the finished look. You may also choose to slightly curl the edges to give it a more 3D look!!
