Hey all- didn't realize there were new posts in this thread!

I cut the cans up first by jabbing an old knife through the can where the nutrition facts are (since I knew I wouldn't need that area) and then carefully cutting around the top of the can with regular kitchen scissors. The aluminum is actually quite thin, so the first cut is the most awkward. Once the top was cut off I cut a straight line down through the nutrition facts to the bottom of the can, and then around once more. The can then unfolded to a rectangle... after leaving a stack of these under heavy books, I used a plastic template I had cut out and just cut around it (I think I managed to cut 4 small pieces out of each can).

Hope that helps!
