I had this same idea! I use these for ash trays for my car! I had a pontiac sunfire that didn't have any ash trays! They are quick and cost nuthin!

You can also cover the can with some scrap booking paper or something to glam it up!

Very nice! Back in the day when I was a smoker, I used to make ashtrays out of soda cans whenever there were no ashtrays available.

These would be great for camping or the picnic basket as they are lightweight. Easy and simple.
