Step 1: Gently Cut a Slot
Using a utility knife with a sharp blade, cut a long slit and 2 short ones across the top of the long slit.
Step 2: Open the Slot
Using needle nose pliers, gently draw the back of the plier along the slit to open it a bit. Do not press to deep.
Step 3: Fold Over the Sharp Edges
Using the needle nose pliers, gently grab the edge of the slit and fold it over a bit. Work along the edge of the slir gently folding the metal over so that it stands up a bit.
Step 4: Flatten the Edges
Using a dowel, push on the bent upright edges away from the slot and flatten the metal. Be sure to use care as the metal will be sharp and this step should create a non sharp edge along the slot.
Step 5: Finished Cap
After bending the edges over, using the dowel, continue to press down on the edges so that they are flat and the cap will be completed.
Step 6: Finished Bank
Put the cap back on the bottle, that should have been washed out first, and the bank is complete.
