well i seen a blog post a few weeks back about someone using soda cans inside (the metal part) to hammer and cut and sand edges(or file might work... maybe) and glueing a few layers of the metal together as well, to make a box and with that idea, you can make almost about anything, you can also hammer images and letters too.

I saw in the current issue of ReadyMade magazine they used old tins to make cookie cutters, I don't see why you couldn't use soda can tops to make mini custom cutters, it would be cute. The mag tells what tools you need to dull the edges.

I currently use a few ones as pen containers.  I just removed the top with a can opener.

If you smoke, you can make an ashtray:

I learned a cool trick, if you like to sew, you can heat up the soda cans over a fire so that they become more malliable (spelling?? haha) and then once they are soft and they have cooled down you can sew them onto things- kind of fun to embellish stuffffff

I love this idea.  It gave me an idea to do something else with them.  Hope this helps.

My mum wanted to make a solar heater with them for a while, but we never got around to it...
