Energy Drink Ornament

As I was cleaning my cubicle at work, I realized how many energy drinks I down a day, Why I'm still tired I don't know... I decided to bring them home and throw them in the old recycle bin. The rockstar cans caught my attention for some reason. I thought something fun can come out of this stuff! This is what came out of that thought.

Step 1: What You Will Need

Picture of What You Will Need
C:\Users\Pai\Pictures\2007-10-20 Energy Drink Ornament\Energy Drink Ornament 004.JPG
12 Rockstar Energy Drink Cans (at $2 a can, this may take a while...)
Packing Tape (I'm sure Adhesive would work too, but the tape makes them less sharp and spikey)
Scissors or Tin Snips
Thumbtack or a small nail
string (Dental Floss in this instance)

Step 2: Jagermeister Optional...

Drink... Not much to this step. You may have some cans on hand like I did, but oh well. You might want to space this step out a bit, just so you don't spend a lot of money. Oh, and sleep... Shouldn't drink that much B 12 and try sleeping... Bad Idea...

Step 3: Cut it Up!

Note: I'm using Rockstar cans to get the star shape on the can but if you want to use another can, stencil it on the can and cut it.
Rinse the cans out before you start. Less sticky...
To start the cut, you can use a nail or a thumbtack and make a hole. Somebody suggested using a can opener to take off the top. Or, you can just stab the can with yous dumpy scissors like I did.
Cut out 12 five pointed stars. Just cut the logo out. Try to keep the cuts straight and clean. Since it's aluminum,be careful to not cut yourself. If you don't have tin snips, scissors will work, the metal is thin enough. You are really gonna dull down your scissors over time doing this, so I don't reccomend using nice ones.
If you use Rockstar cans, use the same size can. The stars look the same size on all the cans, but they're not. Slightly different. It won't work right if they dont match up.

Finally, an instructable after my own heart. I was just about to hop across the street for my daily 2 o'clock diet rockstar...
Don't drink diet things! Would you rather be fat or have Cancer? There is a chemical in diet things that replaces sugar called "Aspertame". It can give you brain cancer!
And Sugar free... unless it's splenda. I'm 10% sure splenda is a bad chemical

I'm a pack a day smoker, cancer is already a checked concern for me. Oh well, I suppose.
Wait... you have cancer or you might?
poi_pai (author)  Flumpkins5 years ago
I don't have cancer. But I've been smoking for 16 years, so I've accepted it as a possibility.

You're probably still tired precisely because of the energy drinks lol
It looks really awesome, man. Good job. If you ever fell on one of these, you would probably die.
This is something you'd find on a ninja's Death-mas tree. "I look forward to sleigh-ing you soon!" :P
Hahaha, wow, that was terrible but awesome. :P
