May Swop Tags and some cat food lids!

Yes you read it right,cat food lids with the odd dog ones thrown into the I follow a blog where once a week where you can nosey around peeps desk,pick up some tutorials,drool over their stash and also pick up some fab tips and one of them was to use the foil lids for embossing backgrounds.But i thought i would have a go cutting them out to make metal looking cogs and this is the result.
