I tried it, but I cut all the strips really uneavenly so it turned out kinda messy. luckily I drink like five soda cans a day so this shouldn't be a problem to redo :3

I love this project! I've actually made LOTS of these...even sold some on my etsy site. I have bags and bags of cans in my craft (aka:JUNK) room. I've used them as mini snack bowls...put several around on tables at a party. M & M's or peanuts are good in these...too small for chips, pretzels, etc. How about using one as a dip container...next to the bowl of chips?
After I tucked all of the ends under the next strip, I then took a pair of round nosed pliers and curled the ends of the strips. Adds a little design flair, and no flapping strips underneath. I'll have to go to see if I can find my pics so I can post my version.
