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

I was just poking around and found this:
http://www.instructables.com/id/SCGO7FOKKTEWUSL963/

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...
