028. Dish

These little dishes are just the thing to add a little sparkle to your next party. They’re made from a single piece of your favorite tin can. You just fold it up—no soldering. Use them for nuts, candy, keys, loose change, whatever.

There are one or two little tricks to making these but once you get the hang of it, you should be able to knock one out in a half hour or so.
We’ve provided drawings for three different sizes, but you can modify them just by stretching them in one or more direction.
