Now heres where the pliers come in handy. use the pliers to pinch the sharp edge inward, away from the opening. Be careful not to squeeze too hard and ruin the can.

Step 4: Finshed

Now you can put pens, pencils, flowers, soda tabs, anything in it and its a cheap decoration. Be sure to clean out can before you put things in it.

My best friend's mom did this a long time ago and I remember she put some black electrical tape around it so that it wouldn't cut and it still looked very professional.

Try using a can opener. I'm not sure that it always works, but I have done it before. Scrapes up the outside a little bit, though.
Indeed, I was about to say that too, It works, And it seems a bit safer than using a razor.
