I found that if you use a can opener (the kind with the twist not the one on a pocket knife) you can actually make cups with the lip of the can still in tact.

Late sorry, dunno if you care but it's a really good idea. If i can find a can opener, I'll update it.

question: why not just cut the inside part out of the lid, leaving the factory "bead" or edge at the top? would still need to wrap for finger protection... just a question.
