1 aluminium can

tweezers for jewerly
a piece of wood
alcohol and cloth
Well, I don't speak a very good english, but Googles helps me a lot, so follow me by this images...
Step 1: Cutting the Aluminium Can
Cut the bottom of the can all around, with the cutter knife and to separate the last centimeter, use the scissors..
not neccesary to mark this line... but, I made it to give you the idea, of where is the right place to cut..
Cut, piece by piece all this around with scissors...please, do not try to cut at one all at the same time, because you can hurt yourself. This section of the can is harder than the rest of the can.
Also, don't forget to use eye glasses to protect your eyes...this is very important!!!
To cut this small pieces use scissors, if the edges are irregular, use the sissors or a sand paper to get a smooth borders.
