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:
-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.
Step 3: Bend Lip Over
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.
Step 4: TAPE!!!
That's right. tape. wrap the outside of you can with your tape to provide grip and durability. label the cup for identification. You can also make add-ons like a mug handle or a pour-thingamajig.
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.
