All I did was take one of the kool like Heineken cans from a six pack that my dad had (they look like little kegs lol), cut off the top, cover up the sharp edges with some duct tape, and there you have it. Stick in some "writing utensils" Tongue and you're done! The top of the can got a little dented though when I was cutting off the top. Ah well.

Why don't you do some thing productive and kill yourself because standing here next to you is beginning to make me look like an idiot. And trust me, I'm capable of looking like an idiot without your assistance.

Thats a cute idea. I love how it looks like a little barrel/keg.

Crafty, baby! <3

a good way to get the top of the can off without denting it (or cutting yourself, since aluminum does that) is to use one of those coarse metal files (like what you would use to smooth wood) and file the top silver edge until the part of the can that you open just falls off.

Another way to get the top off of cans is to use one of those can openers that's made to take the whole top of of food cans. Works really well and they're not expensive. I've never had it dent a soda can.

Seems like a nice easy project.
