Introduction: Fast and Easy Camp Cup

This instructable will show you how to quickly make a light, safe camp cup.

Step 1: Materials

You wil need:
-a can
-some sort of blade
-duct tape(or any other sort of good tape)
-(optional) marker or paint
-a pair of pliers or a grabbing tool

Step 2: Cut the Can

Take your blade and cut the top of the can so that it is a cylinder with one open side.

use your grabbing tool to grab the edge of the can and bend outwards. this will help you be safe when you drink from it.

And that's it! an easy cup for a low cost. yay. i get to eat now.

    I found that if you use a can opener (the kind with the twist not the one on a pocket knife) you can actually make cups with the lip of the can still in tact.

    Late sorry, dunno if you care but it's a really good idea. If i can find a can opener, I'll update it.

    question: why not just cut the inside part out of the lid, leaving the factory "bead" or edge at the top? would still need to wrap for finger protection... just a question.
