The supplies are as follows:

  • Metal shears
  • Sharpie
  • Pliers or flathead screwdriver
  • Sandpaper

Step 1: Remove Lip Of Open Can With Shears

Step 1: Remove Lip Of Open Can With Shears

The very first step is to empty the can.

Using your metal shears, cut carefully along the lip of the can, taking it as slowly as necessary to be neat and precise.

When the lip has been removed all the way around, the lid part with the can opener should pop out or be able to be peeled off.

Step 3: Sand Down Edges

Sanding down the edges will save you the trouble of getting cut on the sharp edges of the can.

Just make sure to do this carefully so you don’t cut yourself in the process!


When all is said and done, the first half should be complete and you can move on to the second can.

Step 4: Preparing The Sealed Can

For the next step you’ll need a full can of soda, and you can’t empty it by opening the pop tab.

Then, draw a line along the rim as shown where you will cut along the can the can to remove the whole lid completely.

Step 5: Preparing The Safe “Lid”
