Introduction: Drinking Glasses From Cans

I couldnt drink it either but before i threw it out i noticed that it looked kinda cool with all the characters and it was made of tin not aluminium. Read on.

Step 1: Materials
A can opener and a suitable can. Heres mine.
Step 2: Cut Off Top
I just used a can opener and the top came right off. This might not work with old openers but should come off easily.
Step 3: Smooth Down
I just used a butter knife for this but it would be better with a file or something. BE CAREFUL, it does have sharp edges and i dont want anyone getting hurt. If you use a knife or spoon just apply pressure from the inside against the pointing in bit and fold it down and flat
Step 4: Wash
Wash thoroughly to remove any dirt or bits of metal.
Step 5: Drink
Fill with and COLD drink and enjoy =). Dont use hot drinks as the cup likes to mimic the heat of the drink and may burn.
