Introduction: Reuse Nespresso Capsules

About: First MakerSpace in Pisa. Since 2014.


I also made a star-shaped brooch. To make the tips I used a round tip tongs; the purple internal was done using another capsule (first I removed the silvery edge with the scissors). The purple internal and the brooch was glued with hot glue.
