* Recycle *

If you are like me, you must have had Pepsi or Coke directly out of the can for the umpteenth time.

But have you ever thought about using that empty can to its fullest possibility…. other than getting 5cents :-) ( at least in the state of Connecticut) in return by putting it in the recycling machine…. or just tossing it away in a trash bag.

For many times, I have held the chilled Pepsi can and enjoyed it till its last drop, but never thought of creating something out of an empty can until yesterday…..when I was in my creative Zen mode. So as always with my magic wand of imagination, I started my new project.


Well the result was satisfying indeed (at least to me)….and why not there is an immense pleasure in creating something out of nothing ….Why don’t you see it yourself...








I cut the empty can carefully as it has sharp edges....


I draw on the back side with pen as you can see in the picture...








Figure half done....











Job done!!
