I bought a Pampered Chef can opener and my husband and I had a time figuring out how to use it! When we did, I found a new source of craft materials - can lids! With this can opener, the edges are smooth. You could also use lids from frozen fruit juice concentrate.

You can make free Christmas ornaments and other year round decorations with lids you've taken off the tops and bottoms of soup, tuna, juice, and other cans with the can opener. Just use a permanent marker to draw out a flower (or whatever) and then cut it out with tin snips.

Save lids from cans of food. I used a can opener that leaves clean edges all around. I printed holiday pictures and used packing tape (clear) over the picture to laminate on the front side. I glued the paper circle design to the middle of a lid. I then drilled a hole in the top of each lid. Using colored yarn, I strung them together and hung them for a decoration. You can do this for any holiday.
