Step 1: Cutting the Can

Locate you favorite part of the can, mine was the words. Now, cut out that part of the can, being careful of the edges and make sure to cut a large enough space to work with. Once you have your piece of can, take your USB and mark a spot on the can at the length of the USB. Mark the can at about three times the width of the USB, once this is done cut the piece out. After you've cut out the piece fold one end of it down using the wire cutters.

Step 2: Gluing

Now take the soda can piece you cut out and wrap it around the USB so the piece can start to form to the shape of the USB. After the can has gotten used to it the USB start to gluing. Your finished product should look similar to the picture below.
