Check these out, they remind me of excess froufrou's only they are made from tin cans rather than aluminium.

I like the ones that look like flowers best. What is with the 1 eye looking like it has a patch or something? I'm sure they would hold up well & are heavier than aluminum but also harder on the hands when cutting,looks like artist might have even used those large 3 lb or more cans. TFS Jan

I think the eye patch is because of the popularity of pirates right now.
I agree, I like the flower one best.

Those are great, I actually did try making a lion one. The aluminum didn't work as well as the tin would, but it sure is a lot easier to work with.

I really like these ! I don't think my hands would like them though.
