What I didn't expect was that the can opener would create for me a perfect canvas for a craft project!
Because the opener cleanly lifts the entire top of the can off, the lid is whole and smooth! Well, shoot! I can do LOTS of things with a flat circle of metal!
Now, being a busy mommy (who is just obsessed with opening cans, now) I designed a couple "lid ornaments" (I know, I'm so clever with my names), but I didn't like them as much as ones my mother executed. Those darn mothers always do such nice work. They're so simple, but so pretty! And, as a bonus, they're double sided!
