    This is a good idea indeed!Since we have strict policies for Solid Waste Management, we come across a lot of articles on recycling and reusing. One of the most notorious objects in this respect is the aluminium can that forever remains the topic of concern both in terms of energy consumption while manufacturing as well as disposal! This is a neat way of making cool usage of the cans… Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Are there dimensions or templates for the “mark with lines” part that I’m missing?

    Pam…the original artist (cocinero) did not provide the dimensions for that part, so it is up to you to create your own size & experiment with it.
