This is a pic of the pattern I intend to emboss on a Sprite can. I have no idea if it's going to work, but I’m trying it anyway.
Apparently aluminum cans are a perfectly acceptable material for embossing. And god knows we have enough of those in the house. Between my beer and my wife’s Diet Sprite consumption, we end up with a lot of cans. If this works out, I’ll have a lifetime supply of embossing material.
Check out this video from Atomic Shrimp (see below) on how to make a small box from a tall aluminum can. Definitely trying that out. I suppose I’ll have to buy some pints on the weekend. And I’ll probably need a lot of practice. :)
