Now that the soda can is empty, you will need to cut most of the top off, and you will need to cut several slats in the cans body.

I also made about 4 small holes in the top of the can

After this the can should be partway smashed and you should be able to see throught the slates demonstrated in photo 4

I used a marker to mark where i needed to cut.

Step 4: LIGHTING OF THE CAN
