Embossing Soda Can


This DIY was really easy to do. I had done something similar to this a long time ago with embossing foil. I wanted to see if I could do the same thing with an upcycle twist.


  • Aluminium Can. The bigger the better
  • Ball point pen
  • Scissors. I use tin snips.
  • Tape
  • Corrugated cardboard
  • Picture template. If needed you may need to flip the image so it is not backwards.
  1. Cut your can. It is sharp. You may want to wear gloves.
  2. Place silver side down.Use your tape to make sure it stays down.
  3. Put your picture template down on top of the tin.
  4. With your ball point pen draw or trace the image. Make sure you put a good amount of pressure so the image transfers to the tin.
  5. Once finished pull the tape up.
  6. Color the silver side if you want.
