These are fairly easy to make, can be made quite quickly with repetition, and make for interesting gifts. With some practice, you can even determine what parts of the can will show on the ring.
And what isn't to be loved about recycling?
Step 1: Tools and Materials
- Empty aluminum can
- Pen (with smooth sides)
- An assortment of pliers
- Electrical tape (used in optional step)
Step 2: First Cut
Be sure to clean up any shards that came off while cutting. (No fun stepping on those!)
Step 3: Rinsing
This makes the whole process much cleaner.
Step 4: Continued Cutting
Take caution while cutting, more sharp metal is exposed.
Step 5: Removing Sharp Edges
After that's done, flip the colored side down, and roller it across the edge of a table to flatten it.
