Making Ornaments from Can Lids

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. You can color the metal with permanent markers. Use care, wear work gloves because the metal can cut you. Keep away from children!

What do you do about the sharp edges? Is there a way to sand them down/polish them so they aren't so dangerous?

New here. I think (maybe) you could use a dremmel? to sand down the edges? One attachment with a coarse sandpaper?
