Step 6: Cut That Can!
It's time to make the attachments for your handles.
First, mark off a 2"x2" square on the top half of the can.
Second, mark off another 2" x 2" square on the opposite side of the can.
Third, using your snipe nosed pliers and scissors cut the two vertical lines on the square, leaving the horizontal line as a mark for where you'll bend the can. You're essentially creating a flap which you will pull down, (repeat this step for the opposite side as well)
Finally, bend the flap down, toward the outside of the can, and trim off all but roughly 1" or so of the flap. (do this on both sides of the can)
Safety Note:Be very very careful when cutting and bending the can, those are some sharp edges!
