Step 2: Cutting Out Soda Can Parts

On the bottom section of the can, cut out the protruding part tha looks like a ring.  I used metal shears to cut out the outside perimeter of the ring, then cut out the inside to get a hollow ring.  Draw an outline of the mockingjay, or find one on the internet and print it out.  Make sure it is about the same size as the ring, with the tail and wingtips hanging over the edge slightly.  Transfer it to the aluminum sheet (from the soda can) by placing the image on the sheet and tracing over the outline with a pen or pencil.  You should see the raised outline on the aluminum.  Then cut out the shape.  I found it easiest to use scissors because the aluminum is so thin.  You can then cut out the pieces for the arrow. 
<p>It looks like the wings are separated from each other, like 2 different pieces instead of one. Is that true?</p>
<p>This is ausome!! </p>

AWESOME!!!!! like my hunger games gift box idea please

Thank you! I'll be making these for hours

Cool, thanks! <br>I've always wondered whether the Hunger Games is a relatively new novel, or if it has been around for a while and just recently became popular.
came out ages ago
Ok. Well its cool that you knew about it then.
wow i love it! <br>BTW i read the books before they were cool
Lovely make, it's a shame about the camera! I look forward to more of your work. <br>For cameras that aren't quite amazing, try getting better lighting by using a light box or general desk / bedside lamps and completely surround the subject of the picture, it will help to no end!
Thanks for the advice. I have a better camera that I will use for future Instructables, I just could not find it at the time that I was making this one.
