Just a quick old fashioned looking sheriff badge for a kids cowboy/sheriff costume. Its made from the bottom of an aluminum bottle.

<p>I'm wondering if sanding the bottom off would have been a little faster and easier. A couple seconds on a disc or belt sander and the piece is free, a little longer hand sanding on a sheet of 120 grit on a flat surface.</p>
<p>Get yourself a jeweler's saw or a coping saw with a metal cutting blade; you'll be able to saw out bits like this and avoid all that filing. Having said that, well done and thanks for the upload! </p>
yeah I know but i was in a hurry, and my local big box stores don't carry metal blades for copings saw for some dumb reason. and i don't own a jewelers saw but i do plan to get one. Thanks!
Simple and a Great idea!!!
Thank you!
Awesome project. My boys will love it. Thanks!
Thanks! My son loves it
Thanks! Yeah the bottle is really the only reason I buy those. Lots of neat stuff you can make out of them.
<p>Very impressive! I would have never guessed that badge was made from the bottom of an aluminum beer bottle. Those looks extremely useful, now that I see what you can do with them. Nice!</p>
