This instructable will show you how to make a japanese lantern out of a soda can.
you will need: 1 or more soda cans an x-acto knife marker or pen candle (optional)
Start by cutting of the top of the can so it is completely open.
Draw and cut slits every 1.5 centimeters around the whole can. Leave room on the ends of the cuts so the can doesn't fall to pieces.
now you have cut the slits, take end and push them together. make sure the columns in between the slits bend in the middle, away from the can.
Add a candle and ... walah
