Sizing down a soda (energy drink) can

Well be making a short can from a regular one.
This is really easy and doesn't require much time.
The down side is that you can only use this short can for decoration purposes.
Actually, you can do whatever you want with it but I haven't found it very useful.

Step 2: Cut your can

You use your knife or a scalpel (what ever you have, preferably sharp) to trace a line around the can.
While you trace your can, press the knife or scalpel firmly onto it. 
Later that line will be the guide where your can will tear (see the next step).

Step 3: Tear it in half

Make a starting hole on the line you made and start pressing there.
It should go fairly easy.
When you split the can make sure that your top half and bottom half are the same height.
That would ensure the best result.

Step 4: Put it all back together

In the end you just put the top part over the bottom part and press them until they slide in.
