ok so i cant find the website where i got this idea....i think it was in a different language....it was quite a while ago that i looked at it. But my aunt is addicted to arizona green tea so i made her an ashtray out of one!  what do you think?  oh yeah and that's fred in the back ground!  Wink



ok so ive never done a tutorial before so here's my go at it!
 ok first enjoy a beverage of your choice and rinse can!
next cut the top off the can (i use regular scissors)
Now cut from the top of the can to the bottom i ususally cut around an inch to inch and a half!
now take one strip and bend over the strip to the left of it and fold over about 1/2 of the end underneath the ashtray (sorry kinda confusing to say)
continue around can
finished can!

I was just poking around and found this:

It gives an idea of how it's made...

But the one that nykole 6412 made is way nicer looking! I might have to get myself an Arizona Tea so I can make one of these for coins, or something, since I don't smoke...
