Step 2: Getting your can ready

First off you need a good sheet of metal from the can. Start by cutting around the top of the can, then the bottom, and cut the cylinder you are left with through one side. After you finish that you want to smooth out the sides. Just cut around the edges carefully and keep it straight and smooth.
BRILLIANT...a store almost sold me for 20 bucks on this and i was like naw not worth it but now I can make it!
Cool! I want to make earrings! This is really creative. I love that it looks hard core, but it's really made from a can that can't cut you. Kudos!
it could if you dont sand down the edges...
I've worked with aluminum cans several times and have found the cut edges to be quite harmless without any sanding or treatment.
why not use a real razor
Well, a real razor could get you in serious trouble at school or in public areas if they questioned you about it. Also, it could cut your neck! Very usafe. I guess if you dulled down the edges you could, but then you would be wasting a perfectly good razor blade. It's great for Halloween too. If you want to make something scary using a razor prop, you don't have to spend the cash buying razors. :D At least, that's what I gather from this.
i dont think its a cost thing, maybe its just here, but you can get razor blades just like that for only 15 cents each...
Soda costs more than a razor blade... Soda: 1 dollar. Razor blade: 1 dollar for a 50 pack, or 2cents per razor
Or, you can use a soda can people throw on the sidewalk, your front yard, on the beach, etc.
emoooooo necklace woot<br />
doesnt have the real razor texture or look. just the shape. Think u should just get a real razor, get some blood on it, great souvenier
hmmm, i just took a razor, ground the edge to not cut me, and drilled a hole. but ur way is much more creative lol
