I do a lot of work with recycled materials, and one of my favorites to work with is disposable aluminum cookie sheets. Here are four entirely different craft ideas for disposable aluminum. Turns out, it is a very versatile medium!
Faux Tin Tiles created from a recycled disposable cookie sheet. A bit of embossing with the end of a paintbrush, and metallic paints make these colorful tiles look amazingly like old fashioned tin tiles! The tutorial on The Sitcom includes six free patterns. Featured in the February 2013 edition Crafts ‘n Things Magazine, where you can find an addition six free patterns for a total of twelve tiles!
