Step 2: Twist the wire

You'll need to cut 2 pieces of wire at the same length and twist them together like in the picture.  Make 2-4 of these twisted wires all at the same length. Also, remember to strip the tips of the wires for soldering (on BOTH ends of the wires)

Just a suggestion, but why dont you solder the wires inside the tin and to the inside of the lid so that it can be folded up and stored easily?
