My kitchen can opener, opens cans without leaving a sharp edge, so be sure you use this type of can opener if you plan on making this project, other wise it may leave a sharp edge that will cut someone, and none of us want that!
Second Caution, do not use can's that have pull off tab tops, the edges that are left on the can are TOO SHARP, and WILL CUT YOU, I KNOW!
Good morning readers, if you are a frugal scrapper like me you hate to see anything go to waste, or add to the landfill's unnecessarily, so in this quest I came up with a way to reuse some of my numerous soup, and other tin cans.
Luckily for me it seems that my grand kids never tire of Chicken Noodle soup, or ABC's 123's with meatballs, (apparently they are completely inedible with out the meatballs, at least according to the kid's as they refuse to eat the ABC's without what they claim to be the 7 or 8 prized meatballs per can) so I don't think I'll run out of empty cans anytime soon. The good news about that is the kid's are still young enough to think I am actually "cooking" when I microwave these for lunch! LOL Did I mention I LOVE my microwave?
I also use my special can opener on the ABC's cans since they have pull tab lids, and the small remaining portion left in the can will cut you, and you will bleed, if you try to use these cans without using a can opener on them that leaves smooth edges, and it hurts like the devil, and bleeds for at least a couple of days.... I know....
So in this endeavor I made this pencil can out of just an empty soup/vegetable can. Super easy, and a great inexpensive gift if filled with either pencils, bagged cookies, candy, or other small items. This can actually say's: I love Golf, but you can chose any topic, or theme you might need.
