Make Some Wonderful Tin Ornaments!

I absolutely love making these ornaments each year, and best of all, they're pretty easy to make! Try bright colors in permanent markers to paint the ornaments with; I found they work much better than paint.You can use knitting needles, old pens or even chopsticks to emboss lines on your ornaments, and recently I found copper flashing for roofs at hardware stores that cuts like a charm, and etches so easily - I'll never go back to aluminum after trying this stuff!
