Anyone have instructions for a "Butterfly magnet" made from a soda can that you cut the bottom & top off, leaving a small sheet of aluminum?

I make pins and magnets from soda cans using my Sizzix die cut machine. Attach the flat can to sticky foam (or glue it to regular craft foam and let dry). Then cut and attach a magnet or pin back to it.

This site has some amazing recycled projects, including soda can crafts:

Which Sizzix die cut machine do you use ? I see so many variations online for sale on overstock etsy etc none of them mentioned the use of foam and aluminum together like it seems it would be too thick? Appreciate your help
