Maybe this is one of those you have to work in healthcare to understand type of things... The hospital where I have clinicals saves the Flip-Off tops from injectable medications. Someone makes them into flowers and the staff wears them on their badges. A neat idea that I ran with, of course!
Above is a picture of various flip off tops. The colors are not the greatest, but you work with what you have.
I punched a pumpkin face out and then punched a circle over it and glued it to the flip top. I hot-glue gunned a brad to the back and added it to my badge.
For Thanksgiving I made a turkey! The flip off top is under there! No matter how I took this picture it came out fuzzy, sorry.
As a thank you and holiday card I will have my classmates sign this card and leave it at our clinical site on the last day. Again I used the flip off tops from injectable medication vials. Way to recycle! - Heidi
